You could always try the cheapest route first and build up from there till you're satisfied with the end outcome. Porting and polishing can get quite expensive. you might start with a cam first or if you want to keep stock cam do a stage 2 head with porting around the valves and on the exhaust side would be a little more economical. If youre not concerned with being cost effective you could just go full tilt and knock off the intake shelf and do it all. Personally I would probably try the turbo on the stock head just to get a baseline for how it feels and if you like it or not then start working up from there. You could do the cam next and then the head. I was going to try it with a stock cam because Im stubborn and I don't think its completely necessary but it will work to your advantage to have a bigger cam. The biggest restriction is in the head at the intake shelf so milling the intake of would actually help the cam even more since the restriction zone is actually before the valves themselves.

Anyone can port and polish if they know what they're doing. You really just need a small drimmel tool and some stone bits and maybe a steel bit or two. However I probably would still have someone do it because when you cut the intake off then the side of the head has to be milled flat so that you have a good sealing surface for your new intake shelf. Plus performance machine shops are going to be a little better at it than one of us who is trying to learn on their first head. Im not sure where you are located but im sure you could ask around and find someone who can do it. I'm in the heartland of sorts for this kinda stuff so i could be at some very big name shops to do this type of work in probably 3 hours or so.

You might be able to call some of the bigger name shops and see if they have any cores they can build for you and then you ship your cylinder head back to them once you get the core in.
