It's only going to get bigger haha. I've got no experience with

programs, is that the direction I need to head?

Almost certainly. Without seeing the image it’s hard to know, but try
Inkscape with a small section, and use the trace option. Note that,
unlike in most programs, the Inkscape dialogue boxes don't go away when
you press OK, so keep an eye on the status bar to see if it changes
from One Image Selected to Path with 13,293,022 nodes (or whatever).

Then you can try path->simplify and if that doesn't change the
appearnce too much it'll be smaller.
