Here's what I just drew up to get my ideas down on paper. The rear/hair light and backdrop floor light are optional, but now I can see the proper way to mount the overhead camera and top light is by installing a pipe at ceiling height so I can experiment moving them forwards and backwards. Also, I'm thinking since this will be a one-man show that I need little tables to the left and right of me for video switcher and computer keyboard/mouse access. Plus I'm terrible at memorizing scripts, so tucking a teleprompter under the talking-head camera would save me a lot of grief. 

Any suggestions, or am I beginning to understand this?

You might want to look into the light stands 9 ft and a 10 foot truss. 

You might find them on used list around 80.  That would support the top light and camera well.
it would also work well for doing one or two backdrop lights from above and to the sides.

Teleprompter.

Another one would be to use a thrift store monitor and allow an assistant to track and keep the monitor rolling.
I use html coded script and run the IE with 200 percent increase on fonts that are 16 and 14.

One other consideration would be two T stand light poles with the top bar removed and replaced with a long pipe between.

Leave the T connect on the top to help with the pipe between.  The truss would be the safest way because you will
have the loading and weight allowed.

The DIY teleprompter stuff looks pretty cool. Thanks...
