Should I google "pdfpages manual", or is this part of the LyX help system?

Perhaps do one and export to LaTeX and compile.
If that works, find how and where this is inserted (in the .tex file) and add another one manually.
If that compiles, run a tex2lyx on it. If that works, it should be a triviality to generate this semiautomagically :-)-O
2a) and 2b) are possible and explained in the pdfpages manual :-)-O
