I use a knot where you make two loops through the swivel and the twist the tail around the main line five times and go back through both loops you made at first and pull tight, makes a beautiful knot that will not slip or break.
I would not use a snap swivel myself I have have back luck with them and big fish, think I would just straight tie.

I use a uni to uni knot with 6 turns on the mono to 10 turns on the braid.
Swivel or direct, it's your choice. Either way is good.

albright or uni/uni..don't think you need a swivel with a crankbait..speaking about saltwater..

The Albright is a good knot for these two diameters, If you want to use a swivel use a barrel swivel between the two lines and then tie direct to crankbait.

I would use a quality barrel swivel and Palomar knots for the line to line connection and a surgeons loop to the crankbait if it has no o ring

the seaguar knot (overhand knot that you twist 3 times and go through
use the seaguar knot. take th 2 lines and make a loop out of them, twist the loop 3 times then bring the acess line through the loop
use the "no name" or "albright" knot with less wraps
