Buy some books!

Start with something like Everst's classic "Sound Studio Construction on a Budget", or whatever later version you can get hold of. Recording ADR, VO and foley requires slightly different techniques than a typical low-budget music studio. It doesn't have to be expensive, but does require some thought even before you lay out the walls.

Then get one or two of the good how-to books about post production audio for film, written by people who do this stuff for a living. (I can think of at least four good authors off the top of my head...)

They won't recommend specific brands or models to buy, but that's the last thing you should be worrying about. They -will- tell you what you have to be able to do, what specific kinds of equipment are used for it, and how to use it. Then you can make intelligent choices about where to spend your money based on the latest developments in the market.

Or spend a lot of money and hire a studio consultant.

Buy Jay's books too!

Also--
F. Alton Everest's books (Amazon.com: F. Alton Everest: Books, Biography, Blog, Audiobooks, Kindle)

Rod Gervais: "Home Recording Studio: Build it like the pros"
Home Recording Studio: Build It Like the Pros - Rod Gervais - Google Books

Hang out on the John L. Sayers forum. Lots of good info there--you have a lot of reading to do! But these 3 resources have helped me a lot with room acoustics, HVAC etc etc. John Sayers' Recording Studio Design Forum • Index page

My best professional advice is that you reconsider the book thing.

Without wanting to sound obnoxious or anything, you will NOT learn how to build a post facility by watching videos on YouTube. There may be plenty of cool videos showing some nice facilities but it will get you nowhere when it comes to actually planning and building the place.
Do try to get some books that will really give you sound advice on basic or advanced acoustic treatment and building techniques.
Good luck with your project.

If you don´t like the book format, then you could start by reading threads here on GS and over at the avid forums! That´s what I´ve been doing since 2006! And it has helped me a lot!

Well, the Sayer's forum and Gervais's book both have a lot of diagrams, but detailed construction as needed for a studio doesn't really lend itself to making videos. If the books being in English is a problem I think Everest's books at least have been translated into other languages. Otherwise you may want to seek out people in your country who have done this kind of work and hire them as a consultant. There is a lot to know if you want to do even a decent job. For a really good result your first time trying you will absolutely need a lot of help, even with doing a lot of reading! And, as you know...the equipment is the easy part!

It's an admirable dream, I just hope you're not doing it for the money. If you're doing it for the love of the craft that's great, but you won't get rich running a post production facility.
