well – you did mention you would be using an adhesive also.

with any construction adhesive, once it cures, it will never come loose.
you will pull the paper off the drywall before the wood falls off by itself.
15/16 ga X 2.5” pneumatic driven nails will be more than adequate.
if you do not have access to a pneumatic nailer, you can rent one at your tool rental place.
or – if you prefer – you can do the old fashioned hammer and 8d finish nails by hand.
how tall will this wall be ? will the wall hold anything like shelves, etc ?
