installed in a specific order and some of them also needs to be

I'm seeking advise and suggestions on two issues below:
Issue 1) What are general Fedora packaging guidelines around creating
such an RPM?
Such rpms are strictly prohibited.
All rpms are supposed to be pulled-in through Requires: etc.
