To be honest man, we haven't used 1.3 as our tourney patch for a few years. In fact 1.3 as a fan-made patch to increase the difficulty of vanilla is in our archives which contains terminated projects and deleted sections of the forum. FFT Arena is a tournament dedicated patch, 1.3 is not.
There used to be a video on how to make a 1.3 tourney patch but I'm not sure if its on anymore. Plus since it's Archael's work, you'd be best to find out those answers on his website.
As far as choosing the maps and what not, I don't really know how to do that because I didn't create Arena. I'm only a regular tournament host and have been for over 3 years here.
But to answer your question on who goes first, generally speaking its the units with the highest speed that goes first but if they all have the same speed than player 1 goes first (which is the team on top).
