thanks

No,it doesn't have a built-in Wifi.
And yes,you have to first apply the thermal paste to the CPU before installing it on the motherboard.

Be aware that in many cases (if not all) the stock cooler that comes with a processor will already have the thermal compound on the heatsink. you will not need to appply more.
