How long will the XYZ piece of WaterWerks equipment take to install?

Typically under 4 hours if rough-in is complete and correct.

What kind of ventilation should the room have?

It’s independent to each room, but there should be a fan with variable speeds and shut-off operation. A typical vichy room will get very humid due to the amount of hot water being sprayed into the room.

What kind of heat should the wet room have?

It’s independent to each room. Forced air is most typical. Infrared is sometimes used but check to make sure that local codes allow for that as some do not allow infrared in a wet room.
