When Installing a new two piece bathtub do you sheetrock with blue or greenboard behind the tubs and surround walls or is it better to just nail the tub and surround walls to the studs? Also when installing a 5'tub should the opening from stud to stub be more than 5' or 5'exact?

Typically the tub gets nialed directly to the studs, which are 60" apart. The walls can go either way, depending on the type of insert. Buy the tub now and follow its directions on rough layout. It's worth it.
