First, you got to take a look at ROS navigation, the tutorials are very helpful.

For mapping with known pose, you can use gmapping package to handle that for you. But if you are using your own robot, you need to prepare the driver to bridge the robot hardware to ROS topics like /cmd_vel, /odom, etc.

As for localization with known map, amcl is the package you'll probably use.

BTW, please show what survey you did before instead of asking a vague question and looking forward to a detailed answer.
