Length of studs is not my main concern. I could return my pre cuts and get longer lumber (more $$)

its 1.5", just add another plate and you'll be fine with teh lumber you have.

For the sheetrock, just cut a strip 1.5" out of 3/8 rock, put it in the middle of the wall and it will meet with the tapers.

Frame the interior walls 9' tall and (as always) cap them with a 2x6 or other scrap that overextends to provide a nailer for the ceiling sheetrock.

The nailer/backer I referenced would only go on the perimeter frame members that are 1-1/2" too high.

What you described will actually work out fine. The sheetrock needs backing so you can hang it to the ceiling. Therefore, all the walls seems correct - just too bad they didn't use 2x6 as an upper plate on the outside walls - if they had, you're nailers for the ceiling would already be in place and you wouldn't be confused by the difference in height.

If you don't put the nailers in, what do you nail the ceiling to if its a pole barn without trusses (which is what I'm understanding).

It's just wood - it's easy...

Your framers used precut studs, which is likely what the print called for. If the ceiling was framed to exactly 9', every bottom board of drywall would need cut. 5/8 is usually put on ceilings where trusses are 24" o.c.

Go with Neal's plywood idea then you can shoot that trim "anywhere" instead of having to hit the studs
