I would like to know which scales I should know everywhere on the neck to solo with for blues, classic rock, and eventually to some Vai & Satriani-esque stuff. Which scales or other things should I do for this?
That's a Bingo!!! Is that the way you say it? "Thats's a bingo?"

Major, Minor, Blues.... And you're good. Pretty much every scale is based off those three

Learn the major scale and learn it well before you do anything else, it will make understanding the rest so much easier.

You can derive pretty much any scale you'll ever need from the major scale.

popular rock = major scale
most rock and metal = minor scale
black metal = minor harmonic scale
blues = ...blues scale
80s guitar solos = pentatonic scale
folk metal = dorian mode (or omit the subdominant)

pent min and maj, blues pwnt if ur interested. Natural minor and the major scale and lastly harmoniv minor. U can do melodic minor if i said it right. Its all up to u and what music u like. Atleaste pentitnic should be first to get a idea on sounds.

Satch has always been keen to advise people to truly know pentatonic major and minor everywhere before moving on, try that

Learn the major scale. It's one of the basics of diatonic theory and can be related to any other scale you choose to learn. Learn how it's constructed, the intervals, how chords are formed from it, and how you can change the tonic (that's generally the first note in the scale and/or the one you resolve to). At that point, you don't need any other scales from a diatonic perspective.

If you don't know pentatonics by this point, learn 'em. They're pretty fun. Or you can do what I do and just use whatever damn notes you want. I'm particularly fond of octatonic scales and hexatonics. But that's just me.
