If you're looking to buy a drum set for recording and using a program like EZdrummer, you dont have to buy a drum set. The easiest way to do it is to use a program like Guitar pro and write the drums in there. From there you can export the drums to a MIDI file and have your program such as EZdrummer play it.

If you're hopeless with software, Hardware's not going to be any better, as you're going to have to have to send MIDI out of the Electric Drum Kit via a MIDI cable, into an interface that can handle MIDI, and then sort out latency, to ensure you're hearing back everything in time.

It'll be much easier to program the drums in Guitar Pro, export the MIDI track into your given D.A.W and set EZ Drummer as the VSTi to play the MIDI data. You may want to mess around with the parameters of each hit though, as it may sound a little dynamically redundant...

...oh wait there... you're playing Metal right?

check your local classifieds, you can probably get a decent acoustic kit cheap, then mic it?

For me at least, it's as simple as using FL Studio's piano roll to write out the notes for EZDrummer to play them. Now, I'm not really sure if EZDrummer can be used standalone, but I recall ToonTrack having a program specifically for that.
