Fit spigot bearing first. Is it a needle roller or a plain bush? Normally it doesn't matter which way round.

Usually needle roller and there is a tiny lip seal in it. Gently taps in with a 'same size' socket and the seal is last in. The seal should be nearest the gearbox, not nearest the crank but that's only if you have OCD. Probably doesn't matter.

Flush with the rear face of the crank, not all the way to the bottom of the hole in the crank.

Between the engine and the type 9 gear box do you use the thin shim plate

Yes you do but it's primary purpose is not as a shim but to stop debris getting inside the bellhousing so sometimes called a crud plate. You can adapt the one from the pinto as shown below.
