There are a few ways to determine whether you're goofy or regular. Try them, but know that the body can adapt to riding either way. If you already do a board sport (skateboarding, surfing, wakeboarding, etc.) then your stance is probably the same for snowboarding, although it's always the same.
To detune your snowboard, use a small hand file, angled 45 degrees to your board's edge, and pull with a few small strokes towards you to dull the edge. Polish with a gummy stone to keep smooth. Research the manufacturer and model of your board, it may already be slightly detuned.
