Is there a way to a)  A global way of asking all surfaces to have the same orientation (without checking one by one)? And if it is not possible, then b) Check which surface has which orientation and change them individually?

Surfaces are oriented w.r.t. the external curve loop. You can visualize the orientations with Tools->Geometry->Normals. If you cannot change the geometrical orientation but you want to reverse the mesh orientation, you can use the "ReverseMesh" command.
