    For the first question, yes - IP addressing will more than likely be used in the packet as TCP/IP is much more popular and prevalent than the other protocols.

    I suggest you have a look at the OSI model, MAC addressing and IP addressing, how switches process frames and ARP.

    As for who sets the IP address, there's a few ways. One is to statically set it on each host individually, or to use DHCP.

    That pretty much explains it. And as he said, I'd start to read up on the OSI model and some books on basic TCP networking.
