Dome Temp / Grill Temp & Lighting Question

I just received a BGE for a wedding gift and had a couple quick questions. 

1st question

When lighting the charcoal for a long smoke (12-14 hours) what are some tips I should follow?  How much to fill? Should I light only one side of the egg and let burn opposite way or just light in the middle?

2nd question

How fat off is the dome temp from the grill temp?  If I want to smoke at around 230 where do I need to be at for dome temp?
