Newbie questions

Hi all,
I am the proud owner of a 1997 International 3800 short bus with a T444e. Got a great deal on this southern bus with hardly any rust at all. Will be converting this to a high school tailgater for our football team. All the seats are out and now start the real work. I have read so many threads on here and watched dozens youtube videos that my head hurts. So here are my top five questions (for now)
1. We plan to insulate the floor, side walls, ceiling with the pink formular-home depot. Q. What type glue-liquid nails do you use? Q. What type screws do I use for the framing? Q. What so I screw the framing to, just throught the wood and into the walls?
2. What plan to paint the outside roof Gold and the body blue. Q. is there a suggested roof sealer that acts as a primer?
