Inside EG you can use an ordered list to run thing in the order you want, but I am not sure it works when you schedule it.
Maybe better to use one flow...:0

Yes, you can change the order. By default, when you schedule a project, the whole project is run (in its default order). For example, if you look at the EGScript1.vbs (the VBScript file created by EG that Windows Task Scheduler runs to execute your project), in it you'll see where the whole project is run:
' run the project
If Checkerror("Project.run") = True Then
Instead of using that code, you can replace it with code that gets the desired process flows from the project's ContainerCollection and run them in whatever order you desire. For example:
prjObject.ContainerCollection.Item("Process Flow 2").Run
prjObject.ContainerCollection.Item("Process Flow 1").Run
