Looking for a specific art program

I'm looking for a program that allows me to do the following simply and without any hassle. Basically I don't want to have to master a program just to do something relatively simple.
1. Add and edit 3D shapes
1a. I want to make a circular room
2. Add my own textures to those shapes
3. Move the camera into various views.
4. Maybe even a way to turn the interior of the room into a 360 panorama.
I'd also like it to be free, or at least have a way to try it before buying.

It feels like there should be a program like what I described, but I'm having a hard time finding it. Maybe I'm just blind.

Either way, anyone have any suggestions? I tried Blender, but I got quickly confused and overwhelmed. (I could just be an idiot, but it feels unintuitive to me.)
Thanks.

DAZ 3d is free.

Google Sketchup is free and very easy to learn. It also has a lot of free assets in its 3d Warehouse.

Blender can indeed do all those things, though indeed it can be tricky for beginners, especially texturing. Still, I teach elementary school students Blender, so anyone can learn it if they keep at it.
