Default brake parts questions

I need to redo all my brake lines, so I figure I should go all out since I have warped my front rotors and they have to be replaced.

I need to know...well... EVERYTHING.

*Brake line ID/OD
*what types of fittings go into the ABS pump, master Cylinder, proportioning valves, and the brakes themselves.
*What is the best kind of line to get? (I was paging through a Jegs catalog and they have zinc coated/plated brake line, but the FSM calls for double steel walled)
*If certain company tools are better than others (bender, flare, and pipe cutter)(no I will not buy from harbor freight)
*Where can I find replacement rubber/stainless steel brake hoses? what lengths are they?

and anything else that I may need/should know.

When Ben broke a line, we patched in a piece of 3/16th" line. If that'* inner or outter diameter, I'm not sure. Tag says BL-330. As for bending, they have tools for it to prevent too short of a bend radius, we just did it by hand. That'* all I can offer. (Ben has a 97 SE)
