    For business trip you should apply for B1 only & for tourism purpose you should apply for B2 only.

    Mostly if you apply for one visa you'll get both visas (i.e. B1/B2) stamped, if approved.

    Appointment won't matter much, so don't worry. DS160 should match with your primary purpose of visit.

      You can easily assume a week time & also keep checking visa application online for status.
