How or recommendations on how to make bedroom wall/entrance to fit an interior door?

My room's entrance/opening for a door is too big for normal door sizes to be installed. It is measure roughly 46.5 inches wide, and 89.5 inches tall. I want to install an interior bedroom door that is about 30 inches wide and 80 inches tall. What is the best way to do fix the wall and install a door, or do you have any recommendation on services that would provide this service?

Thank you in advance!

Response at other post here -

One thing on filling the space around the door - if $ are tight, though likely to raise a red flag during a resale inspection, one can also trim out around the door in colorful fabric, probably with a small piece of trim (or even old door trim) at the outer edge, tuck under new door frame at inner edge - to make basically a cloth outer border or sach around the door - either flat or plated or bunched depending on look you like.

Note however without drywall covering that space it will NOT meet fire code.
