Go to your personal card in Contacts and click edit then in the Share column to the right uncheck emails you don't want to autofill and check the one you do want used.

Pretty sure this is a feature of the browser, not OS. You can clear your browser cache and start over. It should remember your entries as you fill in forms, and try to repeat this in the future.

It is there... you can get to it by editing your personal contacts card in Contacts, or open Safari preferences and in the screen below click "Edit" next to "Using info from my Contacts card" and it will also open your personal card with it already in edit mode. You will then see the share checkmarks column from my earlier screenshot.
