It depends on the product and use of sand or gravel but approx 130 lbs of cement will fill 1 cubic foot.

at least 10 bags can I pour(wheelbarrow) half of the hole at a time without hurting anything if I keep dirt out of it?

Well unless you're Hercules I think you will be mixing maybe 2 bags at a time and dumping it in.

Depending on what you're building and what other work there is, you should consider renting a mixer. They go for around $50 and will allow you to finish more quickly.
