When should I do my FAFSA? Is it the same as undergraduate or is it different?

You should fill out your FAFSA form any time after January 1st, but I recommend filing your taxes early on in the year and waiting until you have that hard data to fill it out. Otherwise you end up having to go back and redo half the information anyway. Just don't add schools until you're accepted, because there's no point in spamming financial aid departments with your information before they actually need it.
