what is the firing order of the cylinders (starting from front to back/right to left), and how to connect the coil wires to the spark plugs correctly.

Just to make it simple. The right front is #1. Right rear is #3. Left front is #2. Left rear is #4.
The right coil fires #1 and #2. Left coil fires #3 and #4.
