Uluru Photography. What Lens? What settings? Ap or Shutter mode?

Hi. Im travelling to Uluru in a few weeks and I would love some advice on Camera lens etc. I want to take sunrise / sunset photos of the rock. But its a girls trip, so I more want pictures of us standing in front of different aspects of the rock/landscape.

I have a old Sony a57 with a NEW lens on it (Tamron 18-200mm F3.5-6.3)

A mount Lens: 35mm portrait, 50mm portrait, 18-55mm , 55-200mm

And i have an E mount to A mount convertor for all my olds lens for my new camera

Sony a6400 mirrorless. (came with e mount 18-55mm)

My new camera is way better.. and all my old lens work fine..

BUT the new tamaron wont work with it even with the converter on it. Ive figured out If i put my mirrorless into manual focus model i just have to focus the lens myself... which wont be great if Im trying to get pictures of my friend and I???

I cant take both cameras and all the lens... what would you recommend for me to take.

Also taking a tripod!

Many thanks in advance, Veronika

ps. Im no model... but this is the sort of photos we want to take..

Aperture?? Shutter ??? What settings would you recommend please?
