Need Advice Recording My Own Music

Yo. So I finally have the basics I need to start recording and making my own music. But I'm a little overwhelmed. I know this place has tons of people who record their own stuff, so was wondering if anyone could help out?

Before I start... My gear is: Focusrite Scarlett 2i4 USB Audio Interface, Reaper, a decent mic amp, EZdrummer, and some simple keyboard sample plugins.. And my guitars and amp obvs...

First off, how do you guys start with what to record first? Do you program the drums then record the guitar over the top? Or do you do the reverse? The music i'm planning on making is going to be very riff focused. I'm not planning any vocals at this moment in time btw

I really love the keyboard and samples on this album. Does anyone have experience of creating/recording samples? Any good plugins?

Do you guys prefer direct input for the guitar and the use of plugins? Or do you use the sound of your amp using a mic? I do like the idea of plugins, but I only know of guitar rig. Any suggestions?

More a technical question... How do I avoid "input lag" when taking in my guitar sound through the USB interface. There is always a tiny delay but it makes things pretty difficult. Maybe this is something I need to read into myself...
