    Can the opbject pronoun be placed indifferently, as in the sentences below?

    They are both OK.

    You will hear/read both, but it is proper, in your example, to reference yourself last.

    I don't think "indifferently" is the word you meant.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
