I’m new to photography, and I’m interested If I use older lenses like series E ,AF, AF-D or AF-G will I have problems with metering system or just have to use manual controls ?
For you D3400 camera, meter will not operate with E lenses, and Autofocus only will work with AF-G lenses.
I always check this page for DSLR and lens compatibility when I am planning to buy an old lens.
Most likely you'll be fine. You will most likely not have auto focus but other than, I don't see any inherent issues with using older f mount lenses
