the way i did it was wet verm on bottom, crumbled cake, then 50/50 verm peat moss on top. nuked each layer (except cake) for 2 minutes, let cool, then 2 minutes again.

perlite can put too much moisture in the air if you have the space put some in a container of some sort maybe a bowl or somthing this is what I do it works well for me keeps the RH right where I want it and its not nearly as messy either

it depends on the container after a week or so you will get the feel for it I mist if it looks dry lets say you live navada you will need to mist more

what are you gonna case with? I recomend coir/verm for your first run the coir really indicates moisture well when it starts to dry out you can see it get very light compared to the optimum moisture content I dont pasturize it either and I have had few problems.
but what ever you do will help experience is better than anything I can tell you. Jst think this way a failure is a good lesson even though its a drag.
A final note :casings are easy and near failsafe if you are somewhat clean while putting them together.
