You can use finish to stick the board up, this is usual. Use dabs on the back of the board then poush in to level. Then skim the ivory side on most boards. If neither side of the board is ivory its the face with no writing on.

As above. You use finish to stick the board to teh wall and finish to skim it. No bonding required.
