There is no cheat sheet because you can use them in any order depending on exactly what effect you want to create. Literally, anything goes.
Now, that said, if you want a specific output, then you can probably follow a reasonable set of assumptions, but these are not set in stone.
As an example, compression is far more usual on input, to gain stage, with reverb after gain stage and pre amplification stage. But I might want some reverb earlier in the chain if I wanted to muddy input to another effect for example.
As far as Sound Design Stack Exchange goes, this is a much better resource for asking how to create a specific sound you have heard. Specific answers to specific questions is what the Stack Exchange network does well.
