Should I use a tripod and if so, why? Suggestions on shutter speed, etc?
Yes you should get a good tripod for macro photography. Because the focus area will be so small, you will end up wanting to move the camera forward, back, and side-to-side to achieve framing and focus for your shot. To assist in this they make a relatively inexpensive device called a Macro Slider Rail.
Shutter speed depends on your subject. But usually you want it fairly fast to capture bugs or flowers slightly moving in the wind. You can also do a search on “Focus Stacking.” This is a technique often used because the depth of field is so narrow. By capturing a dozen or so focal points and stitching them together, your whole bug can be in focus while the flower it is on can stay blurry.
