I read the Crew-1 thread and this one but I couldn't find if the actual schedule for these missions it's the original or because Boeing Starliner isn't flying yet. 
Or that is discussed in another thread?

They have always penciled in the flights. The schedule was mostly dependent on which hardware was available first. With the success of SpaceX, they have taken the lead for the flights.

In other words, both.
Starships are meant to fly

Will Crew-2 go to the ISS before Crew-1 returns to earth ?

Will Crew-2 go to the ISS before Crew-1 returns to earth ?

I was just thinking about this.  By design the two providers are up there on  staggered six month duration.  Until Boeing is certified SpaceX will have to step up and advance Crew-2 schedule. 
My question is how much?  I think a month for the hand over time.  They get more done with more people.  It would also take the pressure off NASA.

Soyuz is still flying.  That would be 11 people on station for a month at a time.  That's not likely.

The ISS could support 13 for a week with the help of a Shuttle so I imagine the handover period will be no more than a week, roughly the same time the Soyuz does for handover.

Fine.  Wishful thinking.  Not a month.  My point is Crew-1 can't go anywhere until relived by Crew-2.

Not necessarily.  I think we've seen intention from NASA to do direct handovers but it is not required.  The Soyuz crews will be staggered with the crews on the American vehicles.

Agreed. NASA bought a seat on MS-17, launching 14 October, for Kate Rubins to relieve Chris Cassidy, so yes, while I believe they are looking to do a direct handover, it is not required.

On his wife @Astro_Megan getting picked to fly Crew-2, Behnken said: "She's super excited to be assigned to a SpaceX mission ... of course I'll have a lot of tips for her, a lot of them will be about how life on space station goes."

As Crew-1 will be the first six month mission for Crew Dragon, the Oct. 23 launch date means there will be a handover at the ISS between these four astronauts and the next four launching on Crew-2 in spring 2021.
