I'm just starting to get into boxing, and i'm going to buy a heavy bag, i found an 80lb everlast heavy bag for $65 (its on sale for now). I weigh about 160lbs and i just want to know if this bag would be good for me? i think this seems like a good price and i dont want to spend too much more. Also i've been looking at stands and i dont know if a regular stand or a wall mount would be better. (The ceiling in my garage is about 10 feet high so i dont think a ceiling mount would work too well.)

10ft high is fine to mount to the ceiling and that is the best option. I had a bag mounted in my garage to the ceiling which was only 8ft high. The bag was about half a foot lower than it should have ben for me at 6'2" tall.
I'd recommend mounting to the ceiling with that much room for sure AND, it'll probably cost less than buying either stand which is a bonus

Its ok to hit a full size bag, sure. In the gym I was at, all of our guys of every age were using the same Ringside Large Heavy bags (around 135lbs). Just make sure you are wrapping your hands and that you are using a pair of quality, well padded gloves.

Well I would say that typically, the top of the bag should be at least a foot higher than your height. When jabbing the bag, you jab at a slightly upward angle, not completely straight.
