> As a general rule with the way our algorithm works it's better to group all choices with the same base locale together, from most specific to least specific, to avoid issues when we insert less specific versions.

1. I used zh-Hant in front of zh-TW because I want generic Traditional Chinese name over Taiwan specific name, but was hoping if a entry have no Traditional Chinese name yet it have a Taiwan specific name, it would be able to catch it.
2. If I only write zh-Hant-HK, would it be able to automatically generats both zh-Hant and zh-HK?

It might be better to keep it the current way. If someone simply typed `zh-Hans-CN en`, then I would say the person would most probably expecting an unspecified Chinese name to appear instead of an English name, when the object he's viewing have name values in both zh and en.
