Frying the uncooked rice is optional. Some like to do that because it gives the fried rice a hint of a nutty taste. Trust me; you will be happy with your outcome if you choose not to skip this step.

For protein, you can use liver; feel free to use chicken, bacon, shrimps, or sausage. You can also choose to make it vegetarian—substitute vegetable stock for chicken stock and remove other meats. Tofu is also a good addition.

More likely, fresh or frozen vegetables give the best result. You can try to stay away from canned vegetables when working with fried rice in general.
