Can a plane lift off the ground at the point when there is the same amount of lift as weight? Or does lift have to be greater?

Yes they can, in fact aircraft regularly lift off the ground when lift is less than weight. They achieve this by rotating the nose, which provides a vertical component of the thrust vector. See the excellent answers to this question for a detailed explanation.
