Hi is it ok to use "paint for plastic" on metal? http://www.rustoleum.com/CBGProduct.asp?pid=118 Also do I still need to sand/prime if the label says no sanding/priming needed? I'm planning on painting the inside of my case, maybe the outside too.

I would recommend just using the paint for metal on the plastic use a fine scuff pad and a non-sanding primer on all surfaces and spray away.

Let me know if you need more help.

Is this ok for primer and if so, is one can enough? http://www.rustoleum.ca/CBGProduct.asp?pid=25

That looks like a good option. Usually around 3 cans will cover inside and outside. Make sure surface is very clean to allow for mechanical adhesion to the surface. Paint probably has some kind of metal etch formulated in it to enhance adhesion.
Let us know how it works out.

Is it normal for the paint to feel sticky? Its been dry for 18 hours but feels like soft clay with minor smell. The paint is like goo when I scratch it so I have no idea how I'm gonna sand it... Would a 2nd run fix this problem?

That doesn't sound good. Did you do multiple thin coats or just one heavy?
Is the humidity high? Whats the ambient temp?
if you stacked coats without some dry time in between it may have trapped the solvent in the lower coats. Try spraying a scrap piece with one light coat and see if it dries. If not the paint may be bad. (very rare). It should dry very fast to the touch like 10 min.
If possible set case out in the sun and let it get some heat on it.
if all else fails you may have to strip it off with some lacquer thinner.

Can you post a pic of case?
