%% And Can it be arranged in ascending order (Please help!)
%% vpa(Fv,5) can not consider all the terms
Have a try!

It is not clear what you mean about considering all of the terms. vpa(Fv,5) looked fine to me. I did notice, though, that vpa() rounds to that number of significant digits, and perhaps what you want is to round in absolute digits.
sympref('PolynomialDisplayStyle', 'ascend')
ans = 'default'
syms x

Fv =
mapSymType(Fv, 'rational', @(e)round(e,5))
ans =
Is that what you were talking about?
Notice that a lot of the high-order terms are now missing, because their coefficient rounded to 5 decimal places was 0.
