If you're writing in Word, or in another word processor that does mostly the same thing, you can do it by inserting section breaks. Each section can have new headings. Section 1 will be your blank pages at the beginning. Then insert a section break to start at a new page. This will be a page you want a heading for. Insert your heading, making sure to turn off the "Continue previous header/footer" feature, which you do separately for the header and footer. You can have separate even and odd page headers. You can have separate first page headers. At the end of your document, create a new section break and don't use a header in it.

This sounds easy, though I've done many stupid things with headers/footers and sometimes had to re-do my whole document to get them right. Anticipate some trial and error for this.
