I recently purchased this plant and I imagine it to be a hinoki cypress. I don't have any plants of this size and I haven't had much experience with conifers and I was told that this species is not the most recommended for beginners. So I wanted some design tips and suggestions for the tree, for example, which branches to cut or wire, position of branches, how long to reduce the tree and things like that. Below are images of the plant.

I also thought about doing an air layering on the circled branch. Do you know if this species accepts the technique?

Thanks for any help you can give me!!

Looks like some type of thuja to me! I would say definitely not hinoki but will let others chime in :)
