Which one should I buy one or two row in the radiator for ej22 engine on GL?
Should installed radiator before engine and transmission put into or after?
What's size for upper and lower hose?
Thanks.

Definitely go two row, install it after putting the engine in and as far as hose size you'll have to get creative. On both of my EJ swaps I just used the radiator out of the donor legacy and it worked perfect aside from modifying the radiator support a bit, I even used new hoses made for the 90' legacy. Do a search and you should find some good threads on this radiator issue.
Good luck!

Gl radiator works fine. On most ea82 cars you have to cut the core suports to get an EJ radiator to fit

 

It doesn't matter if its 1 row or 2 row, copper or aluminum

 

If the radiator doesn't leak, just flush it and hook it up. search for info on hoses and options

No, put the radiator in after putting the engine in. You'll have more room to get the engine in and shifted around and there's no need to bash it all up bud.
