Will Home Depot cut drywall for you?

Yes, they will cut it for you and help you load it into your vehicle. You do need to realize that Home Depot will not take responsibility for accurate cutting or any breakage in the sheetrock, so you may need to buy an extra sheet to allow for damage in transit or whatever else might happen.

Which is cheaper drywall or plywood?

Advantages of Drywall over Plywood
The first is cost. Plywood is considerably more expensive than drywall, especially if you are using a cabinet grade hardwood plywood. This is a large part of what has kept plywood from being used more consistently as an interior wall treatment.

Calculate how many drywall sheets you will need by dividing the total square footage of area by 32 (if you're using 4-by-8 sheets) or by 48 (if you're using 4-by-12 sheets). If you want to get the cost, just multiply the total number of sheets by the price per sheet. Remember to add local taxes and delivery charges.

Drywall should definitely not touch concrete as moisture will wick (ie flow up the surface as in a candle/lamp wick) into the drywall and encourage mold growth. 3/8" should be sufficient - your prop up plan is not only appropriate, but a common technique used by drywallers.
