When we dial a selected contact, the first phone number is always picked (unless another number has a default flag set in DB). How can someone get that first phone number? How are those numbers ordered?

You can define the default number yourself:

  • open the "contacts" / "people" app
  • tap the contact to view it
  • long-tap (i.e. tap-and-hold) the number you want to make the default, a pop-up will open
  • select "make default"
  • 2
    May also say "Make Primary". depends on Andriod version.
