Also, a match tiebreak is like a new set in that for doubles either player can serve first and again in doubles you can now switch sides also, correct?

The bolded part is not true, unless this is about juniors, or if we are talking leagues and your local rules are different.

In adult and wheelchair tournaments, it's just a 2 minute setbreak between 2nd set and match tiebreak.
