IIRC, a pokemon with 2 speed less than another can still go first. 3 or less and the other will always go first using moves of the same priority.

You're 100% wrong.
The faster pokemon ALWAYS goes first when two pokemon use moves of the same priority level, except in Trick Room or when the faster one is holding a Lagging Tail (or the item that works like it).

the way i've seen most is that you alternate going first, making it: opponent, you, you, opponent, opponent, you, you, etc...

If the Speed is the same and the move's priority is the same too, then the game does a coin flip to decide who goes first, then it alternates in each turn. You, him, you, him, you, him.
