Default 99 Forester Head Gasket Replacement - Could use some advice, chime in

Bought this guy about 3 weeks ago:

Barely got it home as it ate all the coolant in the radiator on the 40 mile drive home. Hooray Craigslist.

So pulled the engine and found the right head was leaking coolant into the combustion chamber and the left head was leaking oil.

So the heads have been disassembled for getting decked.

and here is what the block looks like:

the plan from here is:

get heads decked
clean up block
replace oil pan gasket
clean up valves using brass wire wheel
lap valves
clean everything like hell

So here are some things I'm not sure about:
how do you clean the block for a new HG?
should I get a new timing parts?
can I reuse the head bolts
how is the fel-pro gasket set?
anything else I should do while everything is out?
