Basement framing help

My basement was flooded by hurricane Sandy. It was gutted and cleaned by previous owner. They also put down large rectangle tiling throughout the basement. I was gonna wait a year to refinish, however decided now is the time to do it. I plan on doing most of the work myself, except for some plumbing and the taping. I am unsure if whether to use wood or metal studs. I've never worked with metal studs before? I am also not sure how to deal with the tiles, pre-drill thru tile with ceramic bit then hammer drill thru cement floor. Or could I get away with liquid glue? Since no walls will be bearing any weight? Not really sure? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
