I have two Google accounts added to my Android device but I don't want one to be able to be used in "Forgot pattern?" because the password is weaker. How can I just use my one Google account with a stronger password without having to remove the one with a weaker password?

i think it defaults to the primary email, and i have never seen a way to change that.

How do I set primary email? How do I know which email is primary?

there is no way to set it on any phone i have owned. the primary is the first account you put in when you set it up new or after a full wipe.

No offense but I believe that is incorrect. When I forgot my pattern I used the account I added after the "Primary email" and it worked.

i have never use a lock, therefore never forgot it. i was just going off the fact that i have owned a dozen smart phones and never saw an option to set one vs the other.
