I happen to like the Lonely Planet guides.

This should give you a good idea of what you could do.
Oh yes, do get a membership in Hostels International.
Yes, NZ is civilized. As to being like the States, not quite.
You could hike to all the locales used for The Lord of the Rings.
I can recommend a Kiwi who organizes tours for groups or individuals. Let me know!
I hope, this helps.

i don't know but i think new zealand is pretty much americanized. why not back pack through china, india, or thailand? they are much different, they have culture, and it would totally change your outlook on life.
