basement walls game room man cave race room

I'm finally gonna start on my collectable game room, cave whatever you want to call it..
When the oil burner was worked on they didn't replace the stucko like cerment that goes around the burners neck.. so the basement has some soot.. not much, most located at the furn/burner end of the room/basemant.. I'll fix this first.. but
on getting the walls ready for paint..
will tsp clean the cinderblock wall enough to have the sealer not fail..
the plan is a A)landry/sew room b)burner work shop c) the game room..
the walls will get sealer then paint.. haven't picked a theme..
not sure if a racing checkered flag black and white on one wall will be tackie..
most of the two cinderbloc walls will be coered with plexy display cases for all my 1:24th cars, etc..

want to paint the walls before I frame in the room(other 2 walls) but with an open flame, and paint fumes.. might not be the best combo..
has anyone used those waterbased sealers.. do they last/work?
like to get this rolling while the snow/cold out.. but that means heat will have to at least come on, after the wall gets a coat.. at somepoint..
the oilbased sealers, how long you think before the heater could be fired after coating it..
thanks for any pointers/ideas/ etc..
