On your search head, you can add each search peer within manager, while providing credentials to log into each peer. This is all you need for the search head to successfully search on the peers (search nodes).

There are other things you may want to do surrounding getting the data fanned out across the indexing & search nodes, but that should be it for distributed search setup itself.

No, a search peer does not have to be configured to use distributed search. It must, however, be distributed search-enabled so that other peers can add it.
