You might do well to look up TriangularSurfacePlot and
DelaunayTriangulation if you want to make a surface from your points.

It seems as if you have not followed the correct syntax for calling
FindFit. Try adapting one of the examples to your case.

However, the only way I was able to get Mathematica to plot my data was to assume a grid form for x and y, and use ListPlot3D. First question: can Mathematica make a 3D plot from stated x,y,z points?

Here is a simple suggestion of what I was trying. Note, my function is much more complicated. Please also ignore if the given does not work as stated, as I'm making it up.
