May the player of the fraction decide how his characters are initially aligned or is there any rule?
For the scenarios, setup is clearly listed for each faction.
For SAGS play, Rulebook, page 37 (Page 39 for 3/4 player SAGS) "Deployment".
Players take counters matching the characters they have chosen, along with 2 decoy markers, and take turns placing them face-down on the board - Salemites deploy inside, NORAD deploys outside or on a Driller tile.
Once all tokens are placed, they are then revealed and character figures are placed on the corresponding squares, and decoys are discarded. Play begins with the first Initiative round.
