A side air duct is just a place with a fan or the heatsink draws in air. dual + 12v is a dual 12volt power supply. Hope this helps.
this is an example of a side air duct...

That URL doesn't work, but it is best if a case has one, yes, though all cases have fans nowadays, and so must have air ducts or fan holes somewhere to let air through when fans are connected.

If your getting confused thinking the small air ducts are any more important than standard fan grills, then no. So just adding fans would do in the grills where they can be placed.
