I completly forgot the correct diameters for the air to keg and keg to tap. Is it a half inch for air and quarter for beer or 3/16?

I use 3/16 beer line and 5/16 gas line, but I know a lot of people that use a 1/4 gas line.

You always need to use at least 5" of 3/16 ID for gas line (assuming you are serving at 10 to 12 PSI from a standard draft beer setup) Most people use 5/16 for gas line, but that is not critical. Just make sure you get a line that is designed for beer. Some of the stuff they sell at hardware stores will give you an off taste.
