you don't need to install SP1 install directly SP2 and then Rollup 5-v2 for SP2

start with the CAS HUB and then move to your mailboxes

I guess that's very personal just like food actually :o) but I can't argue on the "easier" part though hehe

You need to follow a proper sequence, follow my guide

http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Server_Software/Email_Servers/Exchange/A_10389-Steps-for-Upgrading-Exchange-2010-SP1-to-SP2-with-RU3.html

If you have Enterprise and Schema admin rights, Schema will extended automatically. Also to note, don't leave mix of SP2 and SP1 Exchange 2010 servers, if will break the OWA proxying.
