It does not matter at all. You absolutely can provide a planned arrival date while applying online for Vietnam visa. But it should be carefully considered before you submit as you cannot enter Vietnam earlier than that date.

Can Indonesians use visa on arrival for my traveling to Vietnam by land or sea?

No. Vietnam visa on arrival works at international airports of Vietnam only, so it is for those traveling to Vietnam by air only.
