If you look at a Speed Graphic (& similar), they have a pull up wire frame on the front standard that's used with a sight on the rear standard to aim the camera, and a crosshairs on the front wire frame will give you both centre and frame coverage. Similar to 'sport finders' on TLR's and such. I only mention because most pinhole cameras are ultra wide angle, where aiming isn't so much of a concern. If you're going 'normal', you might wish to rig a finder of this sort.

(Another option is to have a simple lens on the front, some glassine or vellum paper for a ground glass, line everything up, then replace the lens with your pinhole and the glassine with your paper holder.)

Depends on how much sharpness and resolution to want, your artistic vision, etc. You can poke holes in tinfoil with a #8 needle, examine each in your enlarger to find the cleanest one, or just be a lot more fast and loose. Slits are fun too.
