There is no answer to your question. (I dont think). Every machine is set up differently. most people see if it is running sweet, by ear. have you got the manual? I think it mensions it in their doesnt it.
Also, there are loads of clips on youtube showing you the basics.

I was told to go for what sounds right, I have also been told that you put your thumb nail on the grommet or top hat and if it hurts its too high. But not sure about that one...:)

Question#2

Is the depth for a shader 2mm aiso?
A shaders gap i,e how deep it goes is for some they set this gap/depth is set to a nickel wide and others will prefer to set it to the width of a quarter it depends on so many things like the speed ur working at the technique ur utilizing also what parts/how u have ur machine is tuned for. and how big/the weight of the needle grouping is it bigger or smaller
