    Just use the same code and connections as the Arduino for the LCD. In fact, why don't you just use an Arduino with LCD shield for your prototype.

    The load cell sensor will have to be amplified and can then be fed into one of the ADC inputs.

    The code is freely available as part of the appropriate Arduino library.

    The Arduino is simply an ATMEGAxx mounted on a PCB with headers and a means to program it easily. There is software available for it to easily write your program, upload it to the ATMEGA and test it.

    There are many examples available on the web. I assume the Malang government doesn't block Google (or other search engines) - try looking; you might learn something.

    I agree with dougy83, a code is available in most popular search engines. There are guidelines to follow, as well as some basic tutorials on load cell devices.
