First for me, so I figured I would spray the first coat and then spray and back roll with a low nap roller on subsequent coats. Is this about right?

Its pretty risky not rolling that first coat. You might lose all adhesion.
I would

  1. spray and roll primer
  2. spray finish
  3. spray and roll final
Thin the primer and 1st finish a little as well.

I agree too, it's good to work the primer into the drywall with a roller to ensure proper adhesion. It wouldn't hurt to pole sand after the prime coat as well to knock off any high spots/fuzzy texture, (I said "fuzzy" :yes:)

I always use halogens as well to point up...but I do it myself to get it done right :mad:...:)
