You don't scrim internal angles/corners. You put beads onto external angles/corners. No, you float walls first, then skim.

Ideally all ceilings would be skimmed first with scrim around the perimeter

No you float and set the block wall first. Then a tight skim over the top, if the walls are plaster board then yes you do or if your going on top of previous work yes you do again but not for float and setting.
