The pattern directions should say how to insert it, but generally yes, it's sewn on the wrong side, flipped over and encased on all the spandex garments I've sewn that called for elastic.
As for elastic, I try to get elastics that won't fray when cut, especially if I have to cut them down to a narrower width (which happens most of the time). Unfortunately I forget what precisely it's called in the packaging (also because I tend to buy elastic in bulk, which means I don't get a package to reference), but as a visual it's not ribbed cross-wise- elastic with those chunky ribbing sections running across it frays TERRIBLY- and only has the elastics running lengthwise with very light to no ribbing.
