Microsoft has built great documentation you can easily find by searching for 'SharePoint 2016 installation'.

You can find the base of the documentation at Install SharePoint Server 2016 across multiple servers. I would suggest reading through that process. That said, at a minimum you need two SharePoint servers. You can use the Custom MinRole on both or use the per-defined MinRoles of DC+FE and App+Search (when using the November 2016 PU or higher). Since you may be new to SharePoint, I would suggest using the per-defined MinRoles.
