I'd look at a jointer and planar. You will need to have square/flat
stock to really move forward. Now, in saying that, if you prefer, and
a lot of us do, get yourself a couple of handplanes for these tasks.
Can be pretty long work in the flattening department but for squaring
an edge, a plane is pretty simple.
