It is very easy . Cedar is soft materials . You need orbital palm sander Devalt is preferable about $80 cheap one will waste your money . Sand paper about 100- 120 grit . You should spend a few hours per wall . The rules is very simple dont sand one spot , sander always should be moving because otherwise it will create some defect . If the stain is tough you may try bigger grit .
Should looks like new after redone. In order to avoid dust you may connect sander to vacuum .

Not sure but you might be able to use deck cleaner on it. Ask at your local Home Depot or other similar store.
