Difficulty is based on the team leader's settings.
The other question: Any time you make a map transition when level matching, make sure the low level goes first. The level matching system is wonky in a lot of ways, but something I learned the very hard way doing the Pi Canis sorties on my Klingon: If the high level goes in first, then level matches down, the NPCs will spawn at his original level, and then may or may not level match down themselves... if they do they'll still be more powerful than an NPC spawned at the lower level, much like the rear admiral will still be much stronger than the lieutenant, even when he's matched to the lower level.
Edit: Also missed the last question: missions scale by your level/rank, not your ship class. The game doesn't go easy on people who want to try out their Miranda class ship on tier 5.
