Data validation with references to other cells?

Pardon my Excel ignorance, as it has been 12+ years since I have used it. Back then, I was using a windows computer and now it's a MAC with Excel 2016.

I don't know if data validation, pivot table, filtering, etc. would be the right choice or even a combination of? Speaking of combination, would I possibly use a combo box for the following issue? Here is what I want to do...

I'm creating a simple quote. There will be 6 columns and as of now the data resident a separate worksheet. I'd like to have a dropdown for each cell in the first column that references "species." Then, the second columns will have a drop down for "pkg type," but will only display the pkg type for the species selected. The next column would also have a dropdown that would list only the products that the criteria in the first two columns would allow. The fourth column would have a dropdown that lists the different case sizes available for that species based on the criteria of the first 3 selections. Then, the last two columns would need to auto-populate the individual pricing and the case/pallet pricing based on the criteria of the first four columns. It's driving me crazy!

Also, does anyone know how to create a date picker for this version?

Thank you all so much.
