Does a catalyst make a reaction faster or slower?

I believe that by lowering the activation energy of a reaction, catalysts increase the speed of a reaction.

It makes the reaction go faster by decreasing the activation energy.

does having more catalyst change the order of a reaction?

Catalysts lower the activation energy of a reaction by providing an alternative pathway which subsequently increases the speed of the reaction.

Catalysts don't actually make the reaction slower or faster, what it does is it offers an alternate pathway in which the activation energy is lower, thereby making the reaction proceed more completely with a given energy.
