Default Sorting Paired-end files, and automating Mean Inner Distance between Mate Pairs

Hi Guys,
I was following this tutorial and they provided a bunch of paired-end reads.
Forward and Reverse ones.

Automated Goal: Create a script that takes single read, paired-end and mate-pair ends and does a sanity check of a few values:
  1. 1. Determines if these are indeed the types of files that are input
  2. 2. Checks the Paired-end/mate-paired files to see if they are matched/sorted annotated, if not cleans it up.
  3. 3. Determines the size of the insert and inner distance to compare with the supposed experimental bio-analyzer data
  4. 4. If all the above is ok, take a sampling of the large data sets, and do the above QC with BWA/Bowtie.

So I ran BWA and noticed the INED values all over the place. Went back and realized that the files neither have /1 /2 attached to them nor are they sorted and ordered. I'm assuming that's my first problem ?

Is that my correct assumption:

So to sort and append the /1 /2 files I was going to use something like this.

For my sampling I was gonna use this:

For the alignment, I could use BWA, Velvet/QUALMAP/HTSEQ

Ideally I can use python for this (as i'm more comfortable with it). Ok any thoughts and ideas on this from anybody ? Am I on the right track. Am I indeed correct about the non-sorted fastq files being the issues? have you done similar things with your data ?

I was gonna supply the first two reads as an example:
Forward Fastq:

Reverse FastQ:
