Bonding and skimming is all done by a plasterer, thats the only trade you need.
As for cost, get at least three prices and make sure they are all pricing like for like.

hi theres not much diffence between plastering and skimming, as for bonding you would use this on bare brickwork or filling holes etc before giving it a skim over, as for cost of doing a bedroom best to get a few prices,

Hi, there is very little difference, but as the other guys say shop around for a good price and always use a recomended tradesperson if you can.
