Use the Fel Pro Permatorque headgaskets for EA82's. They don't require a retorque procedure like the Subaru gaskets, saves a lot of time and it's proven as it's been used by folks for years.
Intake manifold gaskets should be from Subaru, the thin cardboard aftermarket ones are flimsy and are prone to leak. or you could try to cover the cheap-o ones with sealant of some sort if you wanted to use them.
thepartsbin.com is the only aftermarket company i have seen that has the small metal reinforced orings between the cams. Subaru obviously has them as well for like 2.50 each.
A full on rebuild (meaning main bearings, rod bearings, piston rings) is generally not cost effective and a rather intensive job to do correctly.
