Could we get some pictures?

And also maybe sid could combine all your questions into one thread, it’s perfectly fine to have multiple questions in one thread and we just solve one at a time

here's a detailed description on how to post pics

well you need ~ 1/3 of the smaller sprockets teeth engaged ideally
a quarter is just about being still okay.. less and the two sprockets are considered "too close"
mostly.
too long of a chain and you want an idler sprocket to take up slack

With your setup there, that's about as ordinary of a sprocket distance as can be..
your standard 6:1 ratio sprockets (say 10 on the clutch & 60 on the axle or 12 on the clutch 72 on the axle)
will be just in the correct ballpark.

the enigne plate should be slotted to tighten the chain properly after installation.
and that's really all you need to do.
If you feel the chain itself is still too long, just remove one more link and repeat until happy
