OCD Newb Question About Expansion

Hello all,

I'm a semi-newb to OOTP having purchased in 2016, but barely playing, and then purchasing 20 and becoming completely obsessed. The issue I'm running into is my OCD regarding the game, and I wanted to see if there are any tips you would recommend.

I want to expand a new league to include the Montreal Expos and Raleigh Reapers teams. I have all my team branding complete and ready to go. I have also already restructured the divisions in a way I'm happy about! You can see my division splits here https://www.google.com/maps/d/u/0/vi...7459224913&z=4.
Here is where my questions come in. I've been watching countless Youtube videos and reading through the forum but can't seem to find what I'm looking for.

For my new league, I want to know recommendations for having everything set up to play as realistic as possible out of the gate. An issue I'm having, for example:

Do I start a new game and sim an entire season unemployed (without doing anything else) before I expand the league? At what point is best to expand the league - first day of the new offseason, or wait until a certain point? I have seen where starting an expansion out of the gate in first season has led to scheduling issues with minor leagues. Errors like that kill me with my OCD and kind of ruin the game for me. I just want to see if there are any walkthroughs on how to set up a new season, expand an extra 2 teams and have everything as realistic as possible!

Another question, are there any changes I should make to the league out of the box in order to make the gameplay more realistic? Are there general recommendations of the community to change certain settings for a more realistic and enjoyable playthrough?

I've already started 6 new seasons because I caught issues with some of my league decision, and want to avoid the continual restart!

Any advice would be appreciated!
