I wouldn't suggest anyone who isn't a pro to install large format tile. I've seen / repaired horrors.

This seems like a big job and a lot of questions. If this is truly going to be a DIY job then the only saving grace might be is to measure all rooms walls to walls use long level make shore your all level up to par, put your pattern down first on the floor with pencil all your lines where your tiles are going were your cut peaces are going you always want to work your way out not in so you don't end up having to walk on the tile before they dry.
Do one room at a time.
