Brake Bleeding Clarification


I've changed the brake pads enough times to know that process. Here is my question.

I don't know if I will be able to have all 4 wheels off of the car at the same time.

What is the correct order of changing the pads and the fluid. Is it all 4 pads first then flush the fluid? Can I do one corner at a time, back passenger pads and fluid then move on the the other three sides?

When I am changing the pads I know you have to start the car and pump the pedal a few times, is it necessary to achieve pressure before flushing the fluid?

Also, I am using Castrol SRF fluid so I would prefer to drain the reservoir on the car then add new fluid and just use the bleeder as a pressure on the reservoir and not actually fill the bleeder reservoir.
