There are classes offered by Lowe's and Home Depot, you could also see many how to video's on line. I think that one thing most don't show or talk about is the amount of labor placed on one's back.
At the very least, I would pay someone to hang, tape and texture the ceiling. You can then prime and paint it.
Like Hudson says, it is a back breaker, especially the ceilings.
For the walls, you could also panel them instead of drywalling.
That would be much faster and easier on the back!
