Sewing Help: Jersey Knit T-shirt and Nylon tights

I have 2 questions here.

One is what stitch(s) on a basics sewing machine should I used to sew a Jersey Knit T-shirt I need to make. I've never made one before and usually just modify ones I can buy locally instead but I'm using a custom fabric for this shirt this time around and need to make it from scratch.

My secound issue is I'll be sewing a pair of Nylon tights to make arm gloves and need to sew the fingers into them. Why type of hand stitch should I use to make sure they are secured and slightly stretch. I know to use clear polish to stop any frying but I want to have sure the stitch will work.
