    I need to turn a young smokers face in a haggard, wrinkled, de saturated face and then maybe into ash.

    How do I do the first part to get him from young to old?
    will I need to PS each frame?

    I can't help you with that question, but do you also use CreativeCow to look and ask for questions, as CC is more versed in DCC application?
    Have you also looked at the VideoCoPilot tutorials, as I faintly remember being there a tutorial dealing with morphing a face. I might be wrong though and it could have been Aetuts+.

    For the face morphing part I would use the plugin that was stated above. There is also a face morphing tutorial on VideoCopilot.

    For the ash part, I would really suggest using Trapcode Form and Trapcode Particular.

    you will need some key tweens done in Photoshop.
    that will have to be as still as possible.
    Its a chore to tween moving frames :p

    Am i better off doing this with my canon t2i or canon hv30 or does it matter at all?
    which one would be better for green screening?

    Since both cameras use 4:2:0 chroma sampling, they are both almost the same, as in not really ideal to do that. But if I had to choose, I would use the 550D/TI2, because of the bigger sensor (almost three times as big).

    Here is a very good guide about video compression, and touching the green screen subject:
