Noob Homeowner with Qs

I just purchased a home with a 1.35 acre yard. The previous homeowners didn't take care of the yard so it's got tons of weeds, broad leaf, dandelions, crabgrass you name it, half the front yard is somewhat thin and half of it is pretty nice and is thick and green the back yard is extremely weedy.

My friend came over and laid down some lesco 30-0-8, he said my lawn should green up and thicken up some prior to winter. My other friend said I should spray a liquid down prior to winter to kill some of the weeds do you guys agree with this? Also, the guy that put down the fertilizer said to wait till spring to do core aeration and over seeding I read to do this now? Your guys thoughts?
