Did the Archduchess Isabella have a specific daughter in mind to be a wife to the Archduke Franz Ferdinand?

Yes, she wanted him to marry her eldest daughter, Archduchess Maria Christina. Or better, she expected him to marry her because of his frequent visits at their estate, until one day she discovered that Franz Ferdinand visited her family so often because he was in love with one of her ladies-in-waiting, Countess Sophie Choteck.
Maria Christina (1879-1962) later married to Hereditary Prince Emanuel zu Salm-Salm.

Franz Ludwig Johann Baptist (1839-1891) was the only child of Archduke Johann of Austria-Tuscany and Anna Maria Ploch.
He was raised to rank as Count von Meran April 29, 1844 and served the Habsburg emperors as Imperial and Royal Chamberlain.
Did Archduchess Isabella of Teschen arrange marriages for her daughters Maria Henrietta, Isabella, or Maria Alice?

I don't know about Maria Henrietta and Maria Alice, but Archduchess Isabella was forced to marry to Prince Georg of Bavaria, though I don't know if it was her mother in particular to force her or in general her family.
Prince Georg was a son of Prince Leopold of Bavaria - son of Prince Regenr Luitpold and brother of King Ludwig III - and of Archduchess Gisela of Austria, the daughter of Emperor Franz Josef.
He and Archduchess Isabella were forced to marry in February 1912; in particular it was Isabella who didn't really want to marry him. During the honeymoon they spent all the time clashing and they were already separated before the honeymoon ended. They then went to Munich, in Bavaria, to reside there, but after just three days Isabella returned to Vienna. By the end of 1912 they were officially separated and in January 1913 their marriage was officially dissolved.
Isabella later in 1915 fell in love and wanted to marry to a surgeon, Paul Albrecht, but the marriage was forbidden by Emperor Franz Josef.
