Milton "scholar" here (not really, but basically all of my academic work has been on him). The Milton Reading Room (as >>7600608 linked) will do if you just want archaic/idiosyncratic language use explained, but it won't give you a good insight into Milton's philosophy, religion or even his (extremely numerous) classical allusions. It also won't put you up to date with Milton criticism, which a proper edition will. Both the OUP (eds. Orgel & Goldberg) or the Penguin (ed. Leonard) have very in-depth explanatory notes, though I suggest trying to read as much of it in sequence as you can without looking towards the notes. It's better to let the rolling thunder of his "God-gifted organ-voice" overwhelm you first, even if it means only understanding it later.
