Switch Pro Controller. As to what route to run, just watch any video of the top 10 runners, and they all run more or less the same route. As for how to do various tricks for speedrunning, You can find some resources on YouTube; Hardpelicn's videos are helpful in this endeavor, as well as Samura1man's.

I followed the Google doc here in the resources tab to learn the route, the best thing you can do as a brand new runner though is just play. Even if you don't follow an exact route you should be able to push under 4 hours just by being familiar with the game. Your first time through using the glitches/skips will likely be longer than if you just went through normally as some of them are pretty tough to get down.
