There is a tool called a Loos Gauge which helps you measure the tension in your standing rigging wires. If you are lucky your PO has one stashed somewhere on your boat.
Google: "Loos Gauge"

As for your sails, it might be easier hoisting your main sail first and then putting the battens in the sail. don't think it really matters as long as you don't rip your sails.
