One solution is to center both bindings in their sets holes for a "generic" setup.
The second that i found useful for myself and some people would probably be to do do a quick moving jump with your shoes on and land square on both feet, then mount your bindings about that far apart. It actually works pretty well because nobody really can communicate or replicate how they stand that feels comfortable and balanced but a quick jump and landing and you can usually find a good area to start. Some people tend to have wide stances to keep balance, others like closer stances.
In the end just go with what is most comfortable and try to keep your body centered as much as possible in general. As in dont go for the center holes on your front binding and the far right holes on your back binding...if you like a small stance use the two two most inner sets, and then move then each out 1 and try again.
As for waxing, yes get it waxed...you can get all types of all temperature wax, im sure your local shop can show you whats good for your local mountains if your unsure.
The leash is something that may or may not be needed, some mountains require it and others dont. Basically you do the through loop to loop it around your binding(not around the strap, around the sides or somewhere else it cant come off) and then once your strapped in take the clamp/hook thingy and stick it around one of your boot laces or something else nearby.
