Howdy --
OS: Linux(Slackware 9.0)
Groff version: 1.19
Ghostscript: 7.0.6

How can I set a customer page size and page margin?

What macro package are you using? Here's how you'd do it with mm or ms,
printing to 7x9-inch paper:

        mm: groff -mm -rO0.75i -rW5.5i -rL9i -P-p9i,7i >
        ms: groff -ms -rPO=0.75i -rLL=5.5i -rPL=9i -P-p9i,7i >

You might have to upgrade to 1.19.1 to make the ms version work though.
For -ms, you'll also have to add a line at the beginning of the file:

        .if rPL .pl \n[PL]u

Not sure whether -me can do any of this.

Basically, the -r option sets a number register. One-letter names don't need the = sign between the name & the value. The -P option passes its argument to the postprocessor (grops for PS output in this case) and grops's -p option
sets the page size (length,width).

Can someone recommend a good online web-pages/docuements/book (or printer)

Heinz has already answered that one. :-)
