So, no começo=at first; por fim=at last?

Yes.

"No começo" is literally "in the beginning".
"No começo", "no início", "de início" are good options for "at first".

For "at last", "finalmente" goes better. (used after a long impatient wait).
"Por fim" is better as "finally". (used as the last component in a sequence).
