Default Question on indirect cooking in Kettle

I want to cook a fatty in my Weber Kettle with the charcoal on one side and the fatty on the other. I've never done this and have a few questions...

Should all the charcoal be ashed over or do you set it up kind of like in the minion method with a few coals fully going on top of other unlit coals?

If all charcoal is fully lit, do you add more coals an hour in or so?

Is it possible to control the temperature in the kettle by closing down the easy-clean vents?

Any guidance is appreciated, thanks!

Either way works for me.
Yes.
Yes, but don't close them all the way...

I've written up fire control many times, but can't find a seperate thread.

I'll try and find a more encompassing one
