It's really up to you in what order you watch it. Since you're watching FSN, I'd say save Fate/Zero for last.

2014 FSN > Heaven's Feel > Fate/Zero

Never watch Deen FSN and HF.

Fate Zero is a prequel to Fate Stay Night. It was written by Gen Urobuchi (Madoka, Psychopass). In my personal opinion it's a lot better than Fate Stay Night.

It is a story that takes place prior to Stay Night.

Watching it prior to Stay Night may be considered spoilery or it might let you enjoy Stay Night more, depending on your opinion of what exactly is a spoiler or not and how much you enjoy figuring certain things out for yourself vs. understanding certain meanings right away.

If you're current on the Unlimited Blade Works simulcast, there really isn't much left to spoil anyway. It might be interesting to watch them concurrently actually...

I hope you know what you just got yourself into by asking the bolded
But it shouldn't be bad if spoilers are fine.

But Fate/Zero is the prequel to Fate/Stay Night that's about the 4th Holy Grail War (the one in Stay Night being the 5th). Differences being that there's different servants (for the most part) and a different set of masters whose actions affect the 5th Holy Grail War in Stay Night UBW.

As for which one to watch first, I think since you're watching Stay Night already, you might as well finish that one before Zero, and then watch Stay Night again. You might pick up on some new things.

And if you really like the franchise, you should read Fate Stay Night's visual novel, since the anime can only tell so much.

EDIT: Oh, and if you run into Fate/Kaleid Liner, that's just a fun spin off

If you want my advice do Fate/Zero first, it's the only one I feel absolutely safe in recommending, but the choice is ultimately yours. Just be wary of people telling you you absolutely shouldn't watch such and such first and you have to watch it in a specific order. The Type-Moon fandom has a tendency to be rather petulant and insular, and many are disdainful of people who got into the franchise through adaptations.

They are children in Fate/Zero, about 6 years old. Rin has some appearences in Fate/Zero and 1 episode that follows her around, but she's inconsequential to the story for the most part. Shirou is in Fate/Zero for maybe 30 seconds.
