Longer usually goes on the front. The springs might be labled front and rear and the front ones should have bigger/thicker coils.

go by thickness of the coil (material), not the length. thicker ones in the front.

sure they do... springs ultimately decide the height of your car. shocks determine where the spring perch sits, so yeah, I guess they also have to do with the ride height. did you load the suspension before tightening all the bolts? are the springs seated correctly? and finally, did you install the correct springs in the correct places. most springs will have a painted on number and usually a letter F for front, and R for rear.

they only fit one way.

you have to drive the car for a bit to let the springs settle into place. you can't expect it to be perfect right after you install them.
