I think the tablesaw is pretty easy to control. Suck from the bottom and wear a mask, just a disposable is fine.

I’d work harder at controlling sanding dust, and for that I highly recommend a sanding table. There are kits that furnish the prewired guts and you just build the wood parts and install furnace filters. Well worth it!

DC is pretty easy to add to as you go. And while there are artistic setups out there, most of us have pieced them together with found stuff. Since it’s suction, it’s easy to seal up. Your highest planning efforts should go to placement of blast gates so it’s easy to maximize the power to a specific site.
