First, set the manual control loose until a lure will pull line (just falling from a horizontal rod position) and the reel stops within a half turn or so..NO backlash!.. now the reel is ready to cast... start with the magnet all the way might not cast too far...thats ok! start loosen the magnet...two clicks first..see how it cast..then one click at a time...I run all my reels magnets at half or LESS!!. The mechanical brake does the work.. loosen it til you start backlashing ..then tighten back as you go..
Different lures - different weights - different line size - wind - ALL affect you ability to cast...

You can't. You buy left handed or right handed when you purchase. The easy way is to turn the rod over. Or, why not remove all the line and turn it round so the front holding lug is now the back holding lug, then rewind the line.

Why not? Tie a loop around the base of the spool and start winding the line on. You local tackle shop will often load line for you from a proper loader.
