Around here a lot of fence posts are black locust, you can get them quite wide and a proper length for cheap, cheaper then pressure treated but they’re far stronger and easily as rot resistant. For things like sheds they can be used as foundation posts so that you don’t need a full foundation, you just level all the tops and build on top. Doesn’t matter a lot though, congrats on getting the garage.

If it was me I’d toss up two partition walls that bolt together tightly where they meet and tightly where they connect to the existing walls; wouldn’t bother with connecting to the floor or ceiling unless I was going to run electrical through them but then you may need a permit. Simple 2×4 construction with some sheetrock slapped on the wife’s side to keep her happier. 3 day piece at most, first day walls, sheetrock and mud. Second day sand and remud. Day three sand and paint, for me try not to wander off distracted while waiting for the paint to dry to put on the second and third coats. Finished.
