I have a fairly neutral stance and own Nordica HR Pro 125 boots which have cuffs designed for more bow-legged people and no cuff adjustment. I haven't skied them yet, so I don't know what it will feel like on the snow. I live in Southern California with no easy access to good bootfitters, but will be up in Tahoe in January. Should I try out the boots on snow first or should I go directly to a bootfitter when I'm up there? (Can a bootfitter adjust a cuff that has no built-in adjustment?)
How important is cuff alignment?

ski them and see how they feel to you. Some things can be done to help alignment, without an upper cuff asjustment, but it does limit the options.
if you really needed it, the upper cuff can be removed, and some new holes added to the shell, but this is usually not worth it. Better to just buy a boot with this already "installed"
