Hardie siding over any other fibre cement siding, and Smartside Trim over Hardie Trim. If you like Hardie Trim, you don't install the trim yourself. It's way too heavy and flakes when mitred. Also...

I've never understood screws while installing soffit. I can understand this may be different depending on where you live. The guys from Ontario and out east always used screws but their reasoning was...

Screws and staples will penetrate the fibre cement and fasten into the false fascia. Never had an issue with it. Would be different if it was 4/4 or 5/4 Hardie trim.

The best way, and only way for any fascia (metal alloy), is never face nailing, finish nailing, or whatever. That is why there is gable/fascia trim.

Hardie stamps their product at the top of their sheets with a 'nail line.' So there is more inherent waste due to not being able to use some of your cutoffs. Small jobs it isn't such a big deal, but...

I hear siding installers have guns to fasten siding properly. Maybe get one of them to install it. Or just bid on jobs in which you can professional finish without needing to ask questions HO ask.
