Looks like you've got some Burton mission bindings, good choice!

for the forward lean attachment (the first circle on the left), you need to pull down the silver tab until you hear a snap, the move the knob up or down to adjust it.  When you reached your setting, push the silver tab up until it snaps in place.

For the other two (the ankle strap and length adjuster),  just remove the screws and move the straps up or down, there should be preset holes.  When in place, put the screws back in...
If riding is wrong, then I dont wanna be right!

That adjusts the position of the highback forward or backward.  Those with smaller boots may want to move it forward and sasquaches may want to move it back to provide more room.  Also, one may want to adjust it slightly for an ideal ratio of toe/heel hang.

So should the screws on both sides be in the same position?  And how much toe/heal hang should there be?

It doesn't matter too much.  If you offset it, it can slightly tweak the angle of your highback relative to the binding angle.  Some riders like to leave it square on, but some prefer to adjust inwards (more parallel with the board edge) for better range of motion.  I think you sacrifice a little support for a little range of motion that way.

Personal preference.  I like equal toe/heel hang, preferably 1/2 inch each.  That's where the ever-so-important board waist width (as well as overall width) comes into play.  With a 9 1/2 boot size and an all-mountain board size of 159, I believe the industry is STILL making most boards too wide.  Burton has gotten a lot better.  My Custom 158 is a 24.9 waist width.  I will not buy a board with a waist width over 25cm.  I can get all into the reasons why if you care to hear about that stuff.
