You would take down the ceiling rock if you need to, but if you do not need to don't. As for the window area. Those corners can be stubborn. If you are not planning on replacing the window and the surrounding rock is not in need of replacing do this: cut your rock with a knife along the outside line of where your wood trim will be going. Then you can remove the surrounding drywall. Then when you re-rock the room you can butt you new sheets around the window instead of dealing with the corners if they don't need to be done.
Hope this helps
