Usual setup I have seen and experienced is bigger fins in the front.
For your second question, I would not know. On my board, I can adjust both.

Sometimes in really light wind, the front are the same size as the rear.
In more wind you reduce the front ones in size, in order to keep control and still be able to push on the rear fins and have low drag (less wetted board surface).
I would no doubt choose the rear fins as the "tuning" set with the fin box, if I had to choose.
Simply because they are the main fins, and you can tune so your stance will be good and relaxed - instead of moving your rear footstrap back and fourth, which would be the only other option if having a fixed finbox
