I apologize, push may be not the right word, but the WSUS will not allow the download or install of out dated or mismatched updates.

You shouldn't have to worry about that, the Updates carry with them prerequisites that have to be installed and Windows Update Server won't install them unless they meet them.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

What I meant was you should approve them all, and let the server figure out in what order they should be pushed to the users.

If I approve them all, will all of them be installed, even the outdated ones?
also this wont cause automatic reboot will it?

Wrong!!! it's the client that requests from WSUS the updates that it needs. There is absolutely no pushing of anything from WSUS.

Yes they may be installed , but no the outdated ones won't be because like I said the Update Server will know, wither or not they do an automatic reboot depends on what settings you've previously set for Windows Update on the clients.

There is a wizard within WSUS (Cleanup wizard) that will decline/remove superseded updates.

Automatic reboot is determined by whether or not files were in use at the time of install.

Also WSUS does not do the deciding of which updates are relevant, the clients do.
