There is no need to have sub flooring before you install your ceramic; you can install right on the concrete.
From the description of what you are providing, I cannot see anything missing, other than upon completion, you may want to apply some non-slip surface material on the ceramics. I also recommend that you use all the manufacturer's recommended installation procedures for each material you are installing.
On the bathroom, remove the old carpet and the tack strip. Be sure all staples and nails have been removed. Forget trying to sand the surface; it is messy and a waste of time. It is best to put down Luan over the sub floor and patch the seams so you get a smooth finished surface on which to apply the vinyl. Install the vinyl over this following manufacturer's recommended procedure. Install new baseboard. If this isn't something you have done before, you might want to enlist the help of an experienced vinyl flooring installer.
For optimal bathroom lighting, bathroom fixtures that feature incandescent bulbs behind diffusers radiate the most flattering light and color. Remember that you can use more than bath strips for your next bathroom lighting project. Try sconces on either side of a mirror and a ceiling fixture for balanced lighting throughout the room.
Seventy two hours is the usual recommended waiting period before applying sealer. The same if you are going to use the shower before applying the sealer. I highly recommend applying the sealer and waiting the 72 hours before using the shower.
There are cleaners that are specifically made to clean ceramic floors that can be purchased at most any specialty floor covering store. You can use a vinegar and water solution to periodically clean ceramic tile.
I called the manufacturer and asked what to use. They do not make a product specifically for this, but they suggested rubbing alcohol. Depending on the surface material, it may or may not remove all of the stain. Try it first in an area that won't show, in case the alcohol itself damages the surface. You might also try using an old toothbrush.
