Pearl, that badly cut piece of backerboard is called a "do-over." We learn from them and promise to do the replacement better.

Where adjacent panels of backerboard are tightly butted together, take one down and remove enough material to get about 1/8" of clearance. You need this for the tape and thinset to make the wall as monolithic as possible. Taping and mudding can be done at the same time as setting the tiles, just don't forget to do it.

If you use a good quality modified thinset for your tiles, you can use the same for the glass accents. Same for grout.
