To understand the query, let’s take two sites
https://www.abc.example/a is an already existing site (it is already self canonicalize
<link href="https://www.abc.example/a">) and
https://www.xyz.example/a is a newly created site by me. I took the content from
https://www.abc.example/a and put self canonicalization
So here my questions arrives that
Question 1: The newer one will be the one with duplicate content, as search engines know the old one already (if they are indexed).
Question 2: This depends on the overall SEO score. If both pages are kind of the same - the older one will win.
I've seen pages with duplicate content rank better as the pages where they got the content from. But for something like this you would need to have way better technical SEO, a strong link profile and a fair amount of unique content. And of course.. it takes time. As usual.
