Welcome.

For your first question, most people use a nail knot to attach the leader to the flyline. I use and albright knot for clear intermediate lines because they tend to hold better in that situation, but the nail knot is the real workhorse.

For your second question, the progression of the leader components needn't be in one pound test increments. Your first scenario is best and will generally transfer plenty of energy from the cast forward to the fly and turn it over.
