    My main concern here is how to find the transformer ratio and Vpeak

    You should start with the voltage you need to get the requirements, then add 1.4V for the voltage drop on the diodes. This way you will have the voltage required at the secondary of the transformer and will be able to caclulate the turn ratio.

    Do you have the Sedra/Smith Microelectronic Circuits? It has plenty of formulas that describe thoroughly the full-wave rectification.
