    Sometimes the low E does not have enough energy. Try fretting at the twelfth to see if you get a clearer tone.

    Tuners are ok to get you in the ball park. I always tune a uke to itself as ofttimes, although individual strings may ring true, when fingering chords, it can sound off.

    As mentioned, forget guitar fingering. F# is F# or Gb on every instrument. Learn basic chord positions, if you know 221,2221 and pentatonic scales the the rest is familiarity with fretboard.

    Intonation is indeed a rabbit hole topic. I have always worked by the rule that, get it close by adjusting, filing etc then fine tune when fretting.
