I'm also using a multilingual-site with a default language not
being english.
For the selection I use the extension sr_language_menu, for
selecting the default language I have
plugin.tx_srlanguagemenu_pi1.defaultLanguageISOCode = DE
in the CONSTANTS-area of my template (thus selecting german as
the default-language.

For the encoding (I don't need it here, so just guessing), wouldn't
it be enough to select the default encoding first and
than overriding it in the conditional?
Something like:
config.encoding = (whatever needed for default lang)
config.language = de
[globalVar = GP:L = 1]
config.sys_language_uid = 1
config.language = fr
config.encoding = (encoding for language 1)
(not sure about the exact name of encoding property....)
