Not to be rude, but on this one if you have to ask then it would be best to get the gas compamy or a plumber do the hook ups for you.
Done wrong the best thing what would happen is they would not work, the worst would be your house blows up.

I kinda agree with Joe, something like gas unless you’ve had prior experience, best left to certified Plumber.

in most installations service line is 1 1/8 or 1 1/4 plastic.. inside 1" or 1 1/4" run to furnace or largest appaliance based on service line...with branches off that.... then we reduce down to handle the other demand for usage... what is your demand usage...
