I started the HCT-12 routine these are the workouts I picked are they alright?
Leg Press machine
weight crunches on machine
Alternate these each week so doing 1,2,1 then 2,1,2. Are these good excercises? I picked mostly machines because I have had surgery on my shoulder.
I also wanted to know when ramping is it essential to do all the feel and work sets? I have been doing the bar or light weight to get a feel then moving up to about 50%,60%,70%, then max that I can do 6 times, break 2,2,2?
Also awesome sale I just bought Nitrean+ for the first time since it's now cheaper then what I was currently buying!
If you're trying to loose fat, you'll need to watch your diet, train, and do some sort of high intensity interval training.

The program is a good one. Why do you think machines will benefit your shoulder? The truth is that often machines force you into an uncomfortable (for you) ROM and can actually be worse for your joints.
I would like to see you squat instead of leg press. As you are obviously quite inexperienced the deadlift may not be a good idea because unless your technique is excellent you may injure yourself. With that said, the squat may be an issue as well. Perhaps you can take a video of you deadlifting so we can check form?
I would also like to see some kind of chest pressing movement.

what do you think is the best pressing excercise for chest?
I recommend incline or flat bench and the same with dumbells.
