Yes you can buy pot grown one but they are quite a lot more than you pay for the bulbs. Woottens have still got some bulbs for sale, they properly wont flower to well this year though.

I was in your position a couple of years ago. I want for powered coated because my GH is very near the house and everyone can see it, a plain ali would of stuck out like a sore thumb. 

Ideally the space is more important but I would save up some more pennys so you will both be happy .

I dont know if your buy new or not but greenhouse people are selling a powered coated 8 x 6 for £332 which which very cheap considering how much Pcoating costs. Keep a eye on gumtree/ebay some hidden gems you can find sometimes

They dont  grab / twine / climb like ivy would for example. It will  need a structure to tie and train up.

I would avoid, because they are vicious especially if you come in contact with it regularly.
