beginner bonsai advice please

Hi everyone.

I'm new to bonsai
1. I need to repot my plants , what kind of soil (or mixture)should I use.
2. Also, does anyone know of a shop online where I could buy a small omount of soil/rocks pre packaged or something?
3. I have a hinoki cypress and a juniper. I have them under trees getting full sun in the evening for 4 hours. They get partial light through the day. Should they be in full sun?

The Juniper, assuming you are not in an extreme climate, should be in full sun. Not sure about the other.
