Hello, I would like to know the best description of leaf 1 and leaf 2: serrate deltoid leaf or serrate cordate and truncate at base? are petiole pilose or hirsute or pubescent?

Nothing cordate (heart-shaped) about them. Serrate with a truncate base sounds about right.

Petiole doesn't quite look pilose to me, hirsute maybe, definitely pubescent (which is the general term for hairy).
