In the APA specification, the order of the bibliography list as well as the order of the citations within a pair of parenthesis is to be alphabetical then year ("authoryear"). You can set a different sort order if you do not want to follow the APA specification.

You are referring to a "van" or "particle" element of a name. These have specific rules (and all is not straight yet, for these rules depend on the language and are not clear).
