Check out the fedorafaq.org site for answers to most of your questions.

I will recommend the yum.conf file that they have provided.

yes, save it in /etc/ folder as yum.conf.

Running a yum update is the right way to go.

I will recommend putting enabled=0 for the third party repositories until you are comfortable with yum and are accustomed to fixing problems(like removing rpms etc).

If you are going to be using third party repos, be careful not to use rpms from both livna.org and others like freshrpms.net, dag, atrpms etc. the latter three are compatible with each other.

All the best,

Edit: before the yum update you will have to import the GPG keys as mentioned in the fedorafaq. ( Jus copy n paste)
