-How do player adds work (can you do them at any point in the week and then they take effect on the following Monday?)
Yeah this is how they work.
-Does drafting pitching become more important because you can't really play matchups the same way
Depends on the league settings. You generally end up drafting more pitching and filling your bottom pitching slots with 2 start guys. You can't stream so that takes away one lame strat. So if say I have 9 pitching slots I might go with 3 starters I use every week, 3 RP and then rotate 5 or 6 pitchers in the last 3 slots by matchups/2 start weeks.
-What are the optimal pitcher settings to have (SP, SP, SP, SP, RP, RP, P, P, P), etc....
Whatever works, just keep in mind that SP with RP position eligibility gain value because you can stick a 2 start starter in a RP slot which gives you a big advantage.
-Are there any tricks, is it a lot less fun than Daily?
I think it is more fun personally but I don't really like checking my lineups at least 3 times a day (before each coasts games) just to make sure I don't miss a game by a starting hitter somewhere. Both require plenty of strategy and enough micro management, the only marginal advantage of daily lineups is injures don't play quite as large a role. Probably the single biggest flaw with weekly is when you have some guy get hurt on Mon you are stuck with a dead spot all week. I personally won't play in a daily league again, I don't see any significant positives to it.
