RE: Landing charactaristics (Cessna 182 v. Edge 540 )
You are comparing a high wing basic trainer to a sport plane. World of difference.
The 540 is going to need to fly and land faster then the 182, otherwise it's going to stall on you. That's when things go ugly. Also the 182 is set up with a lot of dihedral to self right itself, not so the 540, it's going to stay where you point it, and not change unless you command it.
As for landing, land on the mains, then let it slow to settle on the tail wheel.
Also tail draggers tend to be a little more difficult on take off as they tend to be a little more prevalent to do a ground loop then a trike will. All because once the tail raises, unless you have enough speed to make the rudder effective, you have no steering.
Take your time with the 540, practice your landings 3 mistakes high so you get the feel of it, then make some touch and goes in preparation for the real landing.
Best of luck to you.
