As far as I know, to get the German approbation (=license to practise) which is neccessary to work in germany you have to be a german or EU citizen. For all other nationalities the permission to practise is given basen on each individual case. The so called "landesärztekammer" grant the approbation. If you already have a clue where you want to work here, the best thing for you would be to contact the institution in that state and ask about your chances.
Your chances might be slightly better in the east german states (just to let you know) and might depend on the specialty you wanna go into.

Oh they will most likely ask you for the following:
birth certificate
educational credential
a note from the local law inforcement stating your not currently under investigation or have been arressted for any criminal charges.

Of course all documents must be translated because the german burocratic dummies are not that high up that they would recognize any foreign paper if you wipe their nose with it.:D

The medical diploma should be fine at first. Than will probably double check if the university degree equals to a german diploma.
And what the other document will most likely be of your current place of living. But just check with the named institition first before you get into organizing all that.

How's your German? Everything in medicine begins and ends with this question. If your German is not good, then you don't really have a shot of studying or practicing at all. I'm also not talking about familiarity or "B level". You need C level and some mastery of technical detail.
