for the sidewalls buy something white and reflective like vinyl flooring. there are also 4x8sheets that have a white reflective surface on one side. the white works alot better than aluminum or other alternatives for reflecting the light because if doesnt heat up nearly as much. for around $30 you can nearly double the effectiveness of your lighting in small areas.
if youre in a closet you need to ventilate somehow. perhaps inside the wall all the way to the attic? exteriors walls are better for that because they are 6" wide whereas most interior walls are only 4".
keep ur lights on chains or rope so you can easily adjust their hight. keeping the light as close to the plant as can be allowed without burning will keep your plants compact and increase yield.
remember when you throw em into flower they will stretch! so if height is gonna be an issue since ur in a box remember to flower early or use creative pruning. they will stretch to twice their height during flower.

i wouldn't suggest venting into a wall. there is too much moisture in the air you will be venting and will result in a badass mold problem. if you cant vent outside, just do it into the room. as long as you have a can there will be no odor. you may need an ac to keep the temperature in the room reasonable tho

For the air in the room I just open a window and have a pedestal or window fan waft the heat out the window.
