Word order has a good amount of freedom in Latin but the 'standard' order is subject then object then verb.
The following link goes indepth into word order, also has a link to a video tgat covera basic word order that may help: http://dcc.dickinson.edu/grammar/latin/order-words
Tuae is a form of the second person singular possessive adjective.
Tibi is the dative form of the second person singular pronoun. The dative is used to represent possession when it is used in conjunction with a form of esse. Nomen tibi est Marcus is more literally 'the name for you is Marcus' but into English it is more natural to say 'Your name is Marcus'.
In short: the adjective tuus, tua, tuum will always be used to mean 'your'. Tibi will most often not be used to mean 'your', it just can be in some situations.
Some nouns, like domus, make use of the locative case to specify location. The locative for domus being domi with no preposition.
Most nouns, like urbs, cannot use the locative case and must make use of prepositions to specify location. We use in with the ablative urbe for urbs.
