How do I find the supporting force $R_A$ and the moment $M_A$?
Should I use the sum of moments or?

This is a statics problem, so yes, you should enforce that the sum of the forces equals zero, and the sum of the moments equals zero. For a uniformly distributed load, you can treat is as a point load applied at the midpoint of the distribution when calculating the moment at point A.
