According to:
“The Order of Divine Services”
According to the usage of the Russian Orthodox Church.

Troparion of the forefeast or feast; Glory… of the saint (if there be troparia for two saints, they are alternated).

It doesn't indicate how they alternate.

I would assume  1st saint at 1st, and 6th hours, and 2nd at 3rd and 9th, but I'm not sure because outside of and an afterfeast the kontakia or the hours alternates in the opposite fashion.

Isn't there a ranking where one saint is "higher" than the other?
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

Yes, you look at which has stichera first at LIHC, and the order of the canons, but interestingly enough the 2nd saint for tomorrow is actually a "bigger" saint, but it happens to be secondary feast day for that saint.

Tomorrow, is Photius and Anicetas (first set), and Maximus the Confessor, with afterfeast of Transfiguration.

Ah, ok.
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

I suppose most of parishes ommit one saint, brutally spekaing. Tehcnically, I don't have any idea, I haven't found any clues in the Great Serbian Typicon, as it assuems in the tiem of the afterfeast of Transfiraution there is only one great(er) saint mentioned daily.

I just assumed 1st sets of Sts for the first hour and alternated from there, no one went running from the church and it didn't burst into flames, so I guess it was ok.
