"And yes I should just use PowerShell to do all of this."
Indeed. A Powershell script together with chocolatey for most of the tools not only means you only have to do this work once, it also makes sure you can't forget anything or misconfigure it.

Chocolatey then also makes it trivial to keep all your tools up to date. Definitely worth the marginally higher effort the first time you set it up.
