What about the hashing rate? Could we start with CPU mining, switching to GPU mining later on?

In a private blockchain, you don't need "mining" in the same sense as a public blockchain like bitcoin. Instead, the network is protected by the need for distributed consensus (or "mining diversity" as we call it) and no difficult computation is required at all. For more information please see the white paper:

You can set the required mining diversity when creating a blockchain in its params.dat file:
