Far as pressure, amount, there is no formula as to lbs of pressure to use, but rather the principle that you apply the least amount, to get the desired response, but also enough pressure to get the desired response.
Far as feeding, and a horse invading your space, make the horse wait to be invited in to eat, and never allow the horse to start crowding you, invading your space, acting possessive of food by pinning ears, ect. If the horse crowds you, make him back off. If you need to use a crop or lunge whip at first, so be it.
If you allow her to continue to invade your space while being fed, it can lead to serious and dangerous food aggression
