Your installation includes connecting up to three televisions with existing coaxial outlets (including installation of Set Top Boxes). It also includes programming of the FiOS TV remote control for your Set Top Boxes and televisions. Additional TVs can be set up for an additional charge.

The first thing to understand is that these forums are not "conducted" by Verizon personnel and that your questions are usually answered by other users. Therefore treat all answers with caution (including mine).
The second thing to understand, particularly with respect to your precise questions, is that in general for the type of work you want done, you will be far better off having the work done by an outside electrician who specializes in that type of work, rather than by the Verizon install technicians. The problem is not that VZ personnel are incapable of doing such work, but rather that they really are not going to give you the work you want at a price you want to pay, followed by the changes and corrections that inevitably occur. They are very good at setting up VZ equipment, including an ONT, a router, coax splitters, etc., but running a complex coax or Cat5 network is another matter.
In my own home I ran all cabling myself, and I have considerable experience in that area. It does not appear that that is your situation, so you must locate a local contractor who has experience in low voltage and network installations, and who has at least some familiarity with a typical Verizon FiOS install. It should not be all that hard to do. Then you will be able to discuss the job face-to-face and come to terms.
If you try to do this by discussing the install with VZ sales and customer service, and then hope that this information will be relayed in detail to the actual individual who does the install, I'm afraid you will be very disappointed with the end result. You can find numerous examples of this problem in these forums, and I can tell you of my own issues (all of which were resolved, but not necessarily with ease).
If you have additional specific questions, please ask.
