I know cement is basically sand and lime(stone) right?
What kind of sand and limestone and how many parts of each?

Sorry, Richard, you will not be making cement. It is made by cooking
limestone and then pulverizing the resulting clinker. The temperature for
scintering the raw materials is around 2700 degrees. The crushers and
grinders involved would be beyond DIY abilities and resources.
The Romans had developed an hydraulic cement that was not rediscovered until
the mid 1800's. The Romans used volcanic pozzolins with lime which ended up
quite similar to today's cement, though closer to what we call mortar.
