Peppers are sensitive to rot, so I would not cover them. These will be easier started indoors in cell trays. They will need bright light, but you can start them under an array of CFL bulbs, or even LED's. Just don't use regular incandescent bulbs. They can even be started in a window that receives Sunlight all day.

Just spray when the soil starts to dry. Keep it slightly moist at all times. It doesn't need to be wet, or completely dry.

35 day germination means that it can take up to 35 days for germination to start.
