So Feather the Redeemed says: Whenever you cast an instant or sorcery spell that targets a creature you control, exile that card instead of putting it into your graveyard as it resolves. If you do, return it to your hand at the beginning of the next end step.

If I play Seize the Day for its flashback cost targeting Feather, Seize the Day returns to my hand, correct?
Same for Onward // Victory, playing Victory for its aftermath cost?

I believe if two things are trying to do something to your card, you pick which order they go on the stack... effectively choosing which one happens. So yeah, Feather is really good with Flashback.

Feather's ability and the second half of the Flashback ability are replacement effects. You get to choose which replacement effect applies since they are both trying to modify the same event.

First, these are replacement effects, so they won't be on the stack.

Otherwise, usually you are correct that you get to choose the order of replacements. Be careful though, as I believe anything that has a Self-replacement effect will always take effect first over another replacement effect trying to replace the same event.

Also correct. Self-replacements first.

The same applies for Dreadhorde Arcanist and other cards that allow you to play instants/sorceries from your graveyard and exile them instead of putting them into the graveyard as they resolve. If they target a creature you control while Feather is on the battlefield, they'll come back to your hand at the beggining of the next end step :)
