If it's matchplay the player who is farthest away ALWAYS go first. If it is stroke play and a player is off the green, but closer than other players, you would usually offer him the chance to go first to come onto the green (that way, the pin can be taken out and kept out) But it is up to the player if they want to come on or not.

Practice like the Pros on a Putting Green?

Putting is considered by a wide number of teaching golf professionals to be the most under developed part of the amateur golfer’s game. Golfers will spend hours at a driving range hitting balls with distance by using their woods and irons, but neglect to spend an appropriate amount of time on the short game. Putting greens are located at every reputable practice facility, and are an ideal way to work on this most vital aspect of the game. Players who do not have the luxury of regularly utilizing a practice range to work on their game will benefit from recent advancements in the market of home putting greens. Practice putting greens are now mass-produced at affordable levels in a quality replicating that of a real grass surface. The artificial materials used in the construction of practice putting greens means that the owner will see minimal maintenance requirements for the unit. Poor putting can cost even the finest player a large number of strokes over a round of golf, and can shatter the confidence of one attempting to develop their game. Conversely, putting can be an enjoyable part of a round for the player who is confident in their ability and consistent in their stroke. Utilizing a practice range putting green or home putting green to develop muscle memory and a consistent stroke increases the likelihood of positive results on the course. Putting is a motion based largely on feel, though mechanics must be realized for the stroke to maintain its integrity. Putting greens offer unlimited opportunities for the player to repeat their putting motion, a method which eliminates over thinking the stroke when faced with a putt on the course. Putting greens are often full of undulations and changes in level known as breaks. Putting greens that are manufactured out of artificial materials will usually contain an element of break in their design, replicating the short grass of a green as closely as possible. Though the pin placement on a natural putting surface is regularly changed to offer different challenges to the player, artificial putting greens will contain holes pre-assigned in the unit that are not meant to be moved or filled and relocated.

Putting and hitting the pin and penalty?

If you are on the green, and you are putting, if the pin is in the hole and you strike it with the ball, you receive a two shot penalty in stroke play or loss of hole in matchplay. You must also play the ball as it lies, so if the ball is holed, it is counted as holed (don't forget the penalty) If the pin is set at the side of the green and you hit it, the penalty is still the same.

Can you chip on the green and mark your ball before someone else chips on the green?

No, this is not allowed, this would be known as testing the putting surface before taking your stroke and would come with a two stroke penalty. In matchplay you may putt on any green on the course prior to the beginning of your match, and after a hole is finished. But not before you take your stroke on any hole.
