I would find it helpful if the script would automatically add users and group into the Farm Administrators group within Central Admin.

I like this one. Generally, I'll have a Windows Group such as SharePoint [Farm Designator] Administrators and add users to the group. Then, manually:
  1. Add group to Local Administrators on all farm servers
  2. Add group to CA -> Security -> Farm Administrators
  3. Add group to CA -> Site Collection Admins
  4. Grant group permissions on Service Applications where needed
  5. Grant permissions in SQL Server
