I am curious in: usually how long does it take for your BG to peak?
If you stay on the forum long enough, you're going to find that everyone is different. Some peak at the 45 minutes, some at 1 hr, some longer than that. The only way to find out when your peak is, is to test every 15 minutes to 30 minutes from eating. This uses up a lot of strips and many don't want to do it, but it will give you the information you want.
Is it of any significance for helping me deal with BG control knowing when i peak?
Yes. If you peak at 20 - 45 minutes, but test only at 1hr, you could miss the peak because your BG may be going down. This would give you false data as regards to how many carbs you can tolerate.
Is there some way to make the insulin signaling kick in faster so i can avoid the high peak?
Can't do anything about insulin signaling (part of being diabetic).... BUT... you can control the peak by keeping carbs low enough that the peak isn't too high.
