Re: Crown molding - Baseboard - Trim - Ceiling white or other?
Ceilings are usually a flat paint. Trim, baseboards, crowns are at least semi-gloss to give them a subtle pop. Also to be more serviceable in the case of trim and baseboards.
For crash resistance, I like MDF. Dents are easily patched. Cracks not so much. Poplar is one of the softest woods available. Although it is harder than basswood, hemlock and pine.
Pre primed MDF with a quick TSP wipe should be ready for paint.
