Braun thermoscan in ear we use. I should think the different models work in similar ways.
Any that are 'non - contact'. They all have a margin of error so it makes little difference really. You don't want to be poking things into little ears, not the way they wiggle about (the kids not the ears).
Our one is in ear. It's not intrusive. So long as you have all your mobility it would be fine. Haven't used non contact ones.
Either left or right should be fine.
Oh yeah. Make sure you haven't been drinking. (don't mean water)

I believe that 'the only thing you should put in your ear is your own elbow'.
My sister is a GP and she recommends this one:

amazon.co.uk/Bra…SW/
That's like the one I have but I don't think you need to spend that much. Was a long long time a go though.

Yep as I thought. Mine not made but amazon says Braun IRT6020 as a replacement. I spent 29£ 10 years ago.

Tried them cheap in ear ones and found them to be too inconsistent

Bought this one last week and it seems really consistent, you get what you pay for
