Ferber method. I swear by it. At 6 months I would not feed at night anymore, it will just become a routine. Let them cry it out, it will be REALLY HARD for about a week and then.....zzzz's through the night, i promise, it worked for all 3 of mine.

yep. my gals switched back and forth all the time when they were younger. They're 8 now.
my older daughter developed usually a week before her sister did. teeth, crawling, walking, she talked better and reads better.

My b/g twins were the exact same way. My son was way ahead of my daughter with everything because she was super stubborn about it. If we saw she could do it, she'd refuse to do it anymore until she was ready.

As for the switching roles thing I think it's just a phase my kids did that when they were younger too. It will get easier though. My twins will be three in June and my son will be one in July.
