Actually, once you have tested with one company you can upload your results to many of the other companies.  However, I'm trying to upload to findmypast from FTDNA and/or Ancestry and am having difficulties.  But I'm sure I will get it.

I wouldn't worry about which side would dominate.  It's random, so the chances that would happen are really slim.  It's like flipping a coin and getting 10 heads (or whatever, depending on your country) out of 100 tries.  The chance of that happening is infinitesimal.  My brother and I are very closely related, DNA-wise.  But we do have somewhat different relationships with more distant relatives.

Through atDNA clusters I have come across my wife's MANNING family also went by the name of BRIEN. These are the ones around Dunmanway in West Cork. As an example, a daughter was baptised as MANNING but married as BRIEN.

I understand the agnomina "Mangan or Mongan" for BRIEN Mangan, as an example, was anglicized to MANNING to explain this. I believe in this case, Mangan may mean "hairy".

I am actively crossmatching atDNA from descendants in this cluster if anyone want to contact me about it. See "My Irish Genealigy" on Facebook.
Names list at http://CreativeGraces.net and various Facebook genetic genealogy research blogs. Multiple atDNA in progress.
