    To understand the plot, is it mandatory to play the first game first? I mean, I really want to know how Geralt ended up with a hottie like Trish and what war is waging in the beginning about.

    I didn't but I enjoyed 2 alot. I played it a little bit when it came out and hated it. I gave it another shot(of course just before Enhanced Edition) Pretty much played it non stop until I finished it.
    I wonder what I missed by not playing the first one.

    I'd say no not really. As the second game has a massive prologue at the start that shows you more or less what happened in the first game. Playing the first will help a lot, and will let you get a better feel of the game world and its lore. But in terms of main story and such, I'd say no.
