What exactly happens when we short a pair?

Hi all, I tried to do my due diligence in researching this question before coming here (babypips, quorra, this subreddit) but I had no luck finding an answer that was exactly what I was after.
I am wondering how the actual shorting process works in Forex 'under the hood'. I understand it is a two sided transaction, but if my account is in AUD and I go long on AUD/USD, am I effectively buying more AUD?
And if I place a sell order for say EUUSD (i.e. selling EUR for USD), and my account currency is in AUD, does my broker convert my AUD to EUR using the going AUD/EUR rate? And then from EUR to USD?
If that is the case, when I exit the trade and take my profits (or likely losses as a beginner), are they then converted back from EUR to AUD? Because in that instance, I place myself at risk to the going EUAUD rate. This means my profits could be eaten up by having a weaker AUD from when I first entered the trade. Is that true?
I hope that all made sense, and would really appreciate someone clearing it up for me. I apologise if there is a resource out there which I couldn't find first.
Edit: I just realised my first example was a long trade and not a short trade, but still I was confused there too lol.

Let's speculate around CFT

As you may have read in the last Medium, referees of the new referral program are going to earn 25 CFT when they join the exchange. Let's all speculate and find what CFT is :D

–– 200% speculation beyond this point, leveraged x100 ––
CFT stands for Coss Fiat Token, the purpose of this token is to represent Fiat value on the exchange. The actual problem we're facing is the lack of liquidity on all Fiat pairs. Let's take ETH as an example: There are multiple ETH Fiat pairs: ETH/USD, ETH/EUR, ETH/GBP. The more the pairs the less liquidity we have. Why don't they merge all those pairs on only one pair ETH/CFT ?
"Da f*ck, I want to know how much I pay for ETH in my home country, not in CFT !"
Exactly, no one cares of CFT, and that's why you shouldn't even see it. Every user in the world will choose (or will have it auto assigned) his currency: someone living in Europe will have EUR displayed and someone in the USA will have USD displayed, but also someone living in India will have Indian Rupee displayed.
"1 CFT = 1 EUR = 1 USD ???"
No, the CFT will only be a stable coin, its rate will depend on your home currency based on Forex prices. For example we could have 10 CFT = 10 USD = 8.82 EUR etc.

Positive impact:
– Liquidity will increase a lot on Fiat pairs (now and especially when we get more customers trading as liquidity brings traders and traders brings liquidity).
– Scalable model to integrate many countries: "I'm from xxxx country, there is not any market in my home currecny, why can't I trade Fiat. Help?". If the conversion is made on client side, Coss can integrate a lot of countries, lot of currencies with ease (as long as they can receive and send Fiat through banks at some point).
– Absolutely needed for the POS (Point Of Sale) we're waiting for something around Q2 2019: if a little shop in Australia want to integrate Coss solution to accept payments in crypto, they shouldn't have to accept USD nor EUR, they should get AUD directly, same for any shop in any country around the world. Customer pays in BTC, gets automatically converted to CFT and then AUD on client side.

Negative impact / Concerns:
– Less opportunities to make arbitrages on Coss through different Fiat pairs (a little bit less volume).
– Probably not the possibility to own more than one Fiat currency at the same time (in reality you would hold them all).
– Your balance might change over time as prices on Forex moves, meaning your 132 CFT might be worth 132$ at some point and 131.53$ one day after, people will have to get used to that.
– Can create some confusion to some users, especially as websites like Coinmarketcap wouldn't know how to classify the prices, as CFT wouldn't be used somewhere else (at least for some time).
– Fees might increase as some conversions will be needed depending on the home country of the users (people might deposit a lot of USD and others withdrawing a lot of EUR, how would Coss manage that as it might become a real threat over time if the total CFT market cap grows to 10-50M$ for example, the model needs to be really solid.
– How would it be managed on the API, would people got the prices in Fiat like on the exchange, or would they get the order books in CFT and would need to do their own conversions depending on the currency they want to use (as a personal user of the API, it seems that this would need to be considered).

Other points:
– Even if Coss make a promotion on it, CFT needs to be backed by real Fiat, even if 25 CFT is probably "only" 2.5-10$, it needs to be paid by someone, if not it's a Ponzi scheme obviously. That means Coss Ltd has to pay for those tokens, and I guess they do have an acquisition price per customer in mind, so this is not something I'm really afraid off, but very important for long term viability of the Fiat model.
– Wouldn't be a bad thing to give Fiat to people if they do their KYC, they would at least be able to test the exchange and try trading crypto before even having to send anything.

Now it's your turn to speculate, hope you enjoyed the ride ;)

Need help on deciding my forex account’s base currency

Hey I’m a 21M from Australia and I have 5k-10k AUD, 5K USD, 2k GBP and 6-7k EUR that I’m looking to start out with (I’ve been traveling and never converted my money back). I’ve been trading forex on a demo account for a few months and I’m ready to create a live account. I have a multi-currency bank account with my local bank so it would be possible to deposit/withdraw with it and wouldn’t need to instantly convert it at withdraw.
I have a job in Australia and earn 5-6k AUD p/m so I don’t need the profits from forex and would probably use it to buy stocks (NASDAQ and NYSE so would need USD). Since I have quite a few currencies to fund my live account with, I was just wondering which one would be more beneficial to use in my situation and why.
Here is what I’m roughly thinking. AUD has been dropping and has been dropping for the last 3-4 years due to mining industry being shut down (mining is/was the main income of Australia). So I feel AUD is likely going to keep falling. Plus, Australia has very little going for it in terms of economy.
Brexit has killed GBP. GBP is being under siege by the EU leaders by trying to make it as difficult for Britain as possible with the trade rules and taxes. And it seems like people would need to have a British Passport to stay in Britain and work in Britain so millions of working professionals will be forced out of the country. So it seems like a lot of Britain based businesses would be hurt because of it. Since USD is considered to be the global currency and their economy seems to continuously bounce back after the collapse of the housing market, 911, etc. It seems to me that USD may be the safest currency to fund my forex account with since its unlikely to lose much of its value over a long period of time.
Europe is in a pretty crappy situation with their ‘open boarders’ being flooded by illegal refugees. I don’t know much about Europe’s politics and incomes etc. (which is a shame because I’m from Europe) but from what little I know, the big economy leaders in Europe are Germany, France and Britain Netherlands, Sweden etc. And now due to Britain exiting the EU it seems like Europe is going to be left with a lot of poorer countries with poor economy. So this whole Brexit and migrant crisis is a big turn off for me from Europe and the Euro in general.
TL;DR: From Australia, have AUD, USD, GBP and EUR left from travel/work and ready to fund my forex account. Not sure if I’m going to stay in Australia, but not sure where I’d move. Which currency would hold its value strongest over time. And which base currency should I use?
