When it comes to doing green stars, does it necessarily matter which order you do them in? Because I see some orders of green stars in 2, 1, 3. Why don't people do 1, 2, 3?

It has to do with skipping green star cutscenes when entering a level. For example, if all 3 green stars are in the first normal mission of a galaxy (ex: Puzzle Plank), you would do 3, 2, 1.

ok, but what about green stars split into 2 different episodes?

If one of the green stars is in a different episode, it wouldl go 2, 1, 3 (2 stars in star 1, and 1 in star 2), or 1, 3, 2 (1 in star 1, 2 in star 2). Sometimes it would go 1, 2, 3 because of better cycles. (ex: Haunty Halls, Beat Block, etc.)

Why is this even a thread? Wouldn't you learn all this by watching Greens runs?

I don't really watch Greens runs. But I do wanna run 242 so it could help to learn green star order.
