Are you aware of this?

You can rent them at any tool rental place, not necessarily a big box store like HD. They are typically not expensive to rent, and it would allow you to move the full panels in place on your own. I think using something like this to put those panels in place would give you a nicer look in the end than making your own ceiling tiles. I sounded like you were talking about the wood paneling, not drywall, but this should still do the trick.
