Does wearing a full face mask automatically mean the air will be forced down my mouth? Or is it reasonable to be a nose breather even though I’m wearing a full face mask?

No it would not automatically force air in your mouth, unless your mouth is open. Full face masks are most useful for those that mouth breathe or otherwise would leak air through the mouth.

The air from the CPAP needs to go down your throat to open your airway. You are inhaling the pressurized air. This happens regardless of the type of mask you are wearing. If you use a FF mask, you can breathe through your nose or mouth.
