I want to load these decompiled .java files in to netbeans to add more features to the app. What can I do with these decompiled .java files & netbeans? How do I load these files to netbeans as if it was my own project?

I think for that you need to create the project as Java Desktop Application and then
I think it will create some file called ProjectNameView.java file and when you select
this file you'll see tabs Source/Design - and in the design mode you'll be able to create GUI.

I think you can still add your other java files in the same way.

I don't think so, I think it follows its own rules when it does GUI design.
Frankly, I'm not 100% sure, as I don't use GUI designer.

Firstly you need to check if you can recompile the decompiled classes from source. If you can't, you certainly won't be able to do so after adding stuff to them
