Dab would be fine. If you want further insulation and maybe soundproofing you can baton wall of, fill studs with insulation and screw plasterboard on. Either way is fine though

It would depend on what insulated plasterboard you would use some have a foil vapour barrier in this case (dab) /adhesive wouldn't be suitable as it won't adhere to the foil. Treated timber batons with dpc fixed to the batons then screwed to the substrate. Your standard insulated plasterboard (pir) can be adhesive fixed hope this helps
