Information about 186 direct stream and 457

I work for IT consulting firm with 20+ years of experience. I hold India passport and currently work in UK. I am offered Australia senior position and 457 processing will soon begin. I was wondering if I can request company to start PR process ahead of time while waiting for 457 to complete 2 years. I am 45 years old.

I have reviewed few sites but not getting clear directions hence this post.

So questions I have are:
1. Can my company technically file 457 and 186 together ? So that I can start work once 457 is approved and continue same once PR is approved.
2. What eligibility criteria employee should have for 186?
3. I read about few eligibility exclusions considering the work experience, work position, salary bands - would like to understand more details.
4. What are the steps for 186?
5. What are the rough timelines for each steps?
6. Are there any specific requirements for the dependents (wife and daughter)?
7. Does one need to work for the same employer after receiving PR? If yes, how much time?

Thanks in advance.
