What moons orbit the sun?
Moons are natural satellites of planets or other space objects. As such, moons accompany their hosts in their orbits around the sun. In this sense every moon orbits the sun. It's not entirely accurate to hold that 'moons orbit planets and planets do not orbit moons'. What is closer to the truth is that moons and planets orbit one another. Even better is the fact that a planet and its moon each orbit their barycenter, the center of gravity of the planet/moon system.
What was the first planet to orbit the moon?
The moon orbits our planet. Planets do not orbit moon. A moon is a moon because it orbits planets. The reverse of your question, 'What was the first moon to orbit a planet.', is hard to say. Moons are formed in different ways and because of this can be made of materials that existed long before they became moons.
