Laser cut railings - how to?

Any tips on handling these this? In 1/250 they are so tiny and fragile!

1. Best way to attach them?

2. Paint before or after attaching?

3. Is varnishing them a good?

4. In fact when making a ship model in 1/250 is it a good to varnish it (spray varnish) beforehand (something I do with "building" models).

5. Attaching one railing to another vertically? Suitable glues?

I have been fired up and want to do some ship models, and these are the main areas for which I would really appreciate some input. Will probably start with something small like the free workboat Don, Marco and others have done.
