floor underlayment

I have a crawl space under the house (raised foundation). My subfloor are made of wooden planks. I would like to put laminate (living and family room) and carpet (in bedrooms) and tile (in kitchen & bathrooms). What kind of underlayment should I use for each of the flooring? Below is what I think.

Laminate - foam padding (I don't know if I should have a vapor barrier)

Carpet - foam padding (I don't know if I should have a vapor barrier).

Tile - greenboard (or concrete board)

The house is in CA.
