Yes, you add air to the bags via the external valves. It depends on how firm you want your ride to be as to how much air you put in the bags. I used to run with 40 pounds in mine (long since sold that motorhome) but a friend swore by 30 pounds. If it is under 20 pounds, you aren't really getting any benefit from the bags. You might check to see if there are any manuals for your bags on-line to assist you.

It depends on the weight capacity of the axles and how firm you want the ride & handling. For the fronts I would say 40-50 psi as a starting point, but the heavier suspensions can actually go up quite a bit higher. For the rear I would say 20 psi and adjust from there.

If the lines actually go to the tires, then that's a unique installation...

they probably go to the suspension rather than the tires!
