Pardon the noob question – If I have say a "brightness" effect and a "sharpen" effect appearing in this order (first is on top of the other), will "brightness" be applied first, then "sharpen"? or the other way around?

Yes, it works the way you suspected it would. Applied effects on a layer work from top to bottom, same with adjustment-layers and layer-modes applying from top to bottom.
