I am totally new to fantasy from 40k. Ive been lookign and I am interested in Slaneesh chaos army yet I am not sure what I should include for 2000pts.
I know I want a Sorcerer. I am not sure if I should have a mortal or a Daemon as my general.
For sure I want to include one Chaos Knights, Warriors, and two Maraders.
What you guys think? Can you help me?

If you want a lot of Mortal Troops (Warriors, Knights, Marauders etc.) then stick with a Mortal General. However, you can get a Daemonic General with the Master of Mortals ability, but I'd stick to a Mortal one.
Anyway, a basic army structure I'd say would be 2 Sorcerors, 1 Exalted Champion, 1-3 Units of Warriors, 1 Unit of Knights, 1-2 Units of Marauders, Chariot (Optional) and Daemonettes.
Welcome to fantasy. At its core, a fantasy army list is similar to a 40K army list. The majority of your list should be composed of Core (Troops) with a splash of Special and Rares (Elite, Fast Attack and Heavy Support) to support the Core.
Magic is much more prevelant than in 40K.
Shooting is a lot less effective the larger the game gets.
Everything hinges on CR (Combat Resolution); the mathmatical formula used to determine the winner or loser of a HtH combat.
As Squeebie stated, a Mortal force would have at its core units of Warriors, Knights and Marauders (mounted and unmounted). You can then add Chariots or Daemonettes to taste.
Magic comes in both the form of magic users (Sorcerers) and magic items and Marks that can be added to most all of your Core units.
