Hanging by the front wheel is easier. Just lift the rear wheel off the ground a couple of inches, and the hand on the handlebar finds the hook. Rear wheel hang means more lifting, of the heavier end.

It's normal for a derailleur bike to make a bit of noise during the shift as the chain moves to a different gear. It should be pretty quiet the rest of the time.
