Yes, you cast off first then fringe. When you get to the fringe we can help you. It's easy to do.

It doesn't matter if it's best quality yarn. It's all a matter of perception anyway. I started with discount store yarn and as I got better I bought higher quality. There's still a place for less expensive yarns though. Lots of people still use them and that's fine. You use what you can afford and what you like to knit with.

A lot of a yarns cost is based on where the fiber came from and how it was processed. As you learn you'll see that not all acrylics are created equal. Some are processed differently, too. Same thing with wool. Some animal fiber is soft and luxurious and some is is scratchy. Once washed it often softens up the yarn nicely.

The label usually gives washing instructions. If the yarn is all acrylic or acrylic cotton you can machine wash and dry.

Oh I see. Well, I can't help you there since I don't have the machine. I'm sure you'll figure it out.

Oh no! But, I maybe found help! Go to YouTube and type in Innovations Knitting Machine. There are a bunch of videos for this machine including knitting a flat panel. I'm not sure if there is help for the skipped stitches issue, but maybe.

You can also try other terms in a search like "Innovations knitting machine help" or "Innovations knitting machine cast off". Casting off is also called binding off so you could try both.

And don't forget that a flat panel of stockinette will curl. It needs a fairly wide border to help it.
