I just made this pattern-just need to sew on my buttons.

The answer to your first question is yes, that is the way to start.

For your second question, I am assuming that you mean where do you hold the cable needle. Hold to front is the side facing you. Hold to back is the side facing away from you.

I agree that the chart is a bit hard to read. I took a sharpie and marked dark lines between each four stitch cable. It made it a LOT easier to read. Good luck! The results of the effort are worth it, I think.

I started it on a Friday evening and had it finished on Sunday (except of course the buttons). I had a lot of knitting time that weekend though, so if I were going to add up the hours, I'd estimate about 10 or 12 hours of actual knitting time. The cabling definitely slowed things down, but I found that once I got the pattern established, I could glance at the chart and compare to my knitting to see which type of cable came next, without having to really look at the key, which helped me to stay in somewhat of a rhythm.

By the way--I used Amy's video for the one row buttonhole for this project and it worked great. If you haven't tried that type of buttonhole before, you might try it out.
