Focus lock/exposure lock

Hey the best crowd ever,

I have been reading articles about focus lock and exposure lock and I'm still little confused.

Does it matter if I lock exposure or focus first?

If I am doing portraits, do I zoom in on face , take exposure reading. Lock it with a back button. Hold it down. Then press shutter halfway to lock focus on eyes. Recompose.  Then press all the way down. Are these the right steps?  And which metering mode should I use for this.

When doing landscape..where should you take the exposure reading and lock it?

Thank you for your time! I really appreciate it

Have a great weekend!
