recording acoustic guitar..delay and reverb

Hello I am recording acoustic guitar with rodent1a through a mixer and scarlet2i2 I get a very clean recording I created two stereo channels 1 left one right and i put them in a group channel I want to apply delay and reverb , do I have to pan the delay and reverb the opposite way like If i am adding delay to left stereo channel the delay must travel to right.
and where it is better to add compression in inserts or sends ??

Pantning effects like delay and reverb is totally a matter of taste. But as a starter I would keep it simple and just keep the pans in the middle. There are so many other things to work with that are more important (arrangement, levels, sound design etc etc).

Compression typically goes on inserts. Pre-fader with is default for the first 8(?) inserts in Cubase.

Your guitar recordings will be two mono recordings routed to a stereo Group Track. They can be panned however you want. When you add a stereo delay on the stereo Group Track, you'll get proper stereo effect. You'll want to do the panning of each recorded mono track and probably not pan the stereo Group Track.

If you make a recording with one nt-1a you will have one mono recording.
No need to create two mono tracks from this one recording.
You can put a stereo fx on a mono track.

Recording with one (normal) microphone will always be mono.
You can make (or record) as many tracks of this signal as you want but it will always be mono.
Putting or routing this signal through a stereo configuarted track lets you ad a stereo effect to the mono signal.
