It's a two-swap of corners and a four-cycle of edges. The reason it's so unfamiliar is that usually it's looked at from a different AUF. If you move the U layer in this case, it's just an A perm.

I just got my gan 356x, and it's amazing compared to my cubes from 2016!
Anyway since it's stickerless, I noticed that I can actually see the colors in the back when lighting is good and I tilt the cube slightly forward. Never used that to my advantage, but isn't that a concern with WCA rules?

It used to be an issue, but in July 2015 the WCA realized that it can't be easily used to one's advantage, so the regs now allow stickerless cubes. Its all good

so on 3x3 using CFOP the cross can always be made in 8 moves or less. on 2x2 a face can be made in 5 move or less, so when solving 3x3 with roux how many moves should first block take?

There is a post on the Wiki about First 2 Blocks, and the average length to Solve F2B is about 20, so that should mean 1st Block should be able to be solved in about 10 Moves or less.
