Any recommendations on the type and brand of battery to use with the SB-900?

It's hard to beat Sanyo Eneloops.

Rechargeable or disposable?

Eneloops are rechargeable.

Also, if the ceiling is not white, is it better to use auto white balance in the D700, or adjust the temperature in camera (k)?

Shoot RAW (NEF) and adjust the WB in PP (with RAW, the WB setting in the camera is unimportant). Shoot a test shot at the beginning with a known white target in the frame (have someone hold it).
