For the rails I forgot to mention the traditional method – use a short tenon on the rail into a mortise on the leg and use bed bolt hardware to lock them in. This is usually used to join the side rails. The headboard and foot board are typically permanently attached.

Another question you’ll have to address is whether you want to be able to take this apart to move it, or if you want it permanently assembled. If the later, you’ll need a saw to get it out of the room. If the former, I’d probably skip gluing any of the rails and use screws or bed bolts.
