How do you find the order for the reactants and overall order?
I'm confused on when to use each experiment?

Focus on only one reactant at a time. Usually there will only be one reactant whose initial concentrations have been changed, and by dividing the rates of that reaction and setting that equal to the division of the modified concentration of reactants to an unknown power and solving for the unknown power, you can find the order for that reactant. Do the same for other reactants and add them up to find the overall order.
