Netgear VLAN questions

I am configuring a VLAN using Netgear switches with SFP ports.  I have 6 separate buildings with there own network rack and each have a 48 port switch with a fiber run back to the main network room.  In the main network room, I have a 12 port SFP Netgear fiber switch and 2 48 port Netgear switches.  I also have 4 access points in each of the 6 buildings connected to port 1-4.  The fiber ports are port 49 in each of the buildings.  Here's what I did to configure the VLAN, please let me know if I may be missing anything.  I created the 2 VLAN's on every device, I left VLAN 1 as the management VLAN and made VLAN 11 for the private network, and VLAN 12 as the public network.  I tagged VLAN 11 and 12 on ports 1-4 and port 49 on all switches.  I also marked ports 5-24 untagged for VLAN 12 and 25-48 for VLAN 11. Then I went to routing and went to VLAN.  I selected the VLAN ID, entered the IP address and the subnet of what I wanted the switch to be set as for each VLAN.  <--Not sure if this is correct.

If the SFP switch is a layer 3 switch you would create a vlan interface for each vlan and assign an ip address to each. The ip you assign each vlan interface is the will be the default gateway for that vlan.

Okay, I would take all of the vlans on the trunk ports leading back the to SFP switch. I would tag all the vlans connected to the AP's if you are running multiple ssid's per vlan on them. Each building switch would have an ip for VLAN 1 for management. The SFP switch would have an ip for all vlan's since it is routing for them.

How would I give the SFP switch an IP for all VLAN's?  What would that be called?

It's a Netgear ProSafe GSM7212P
It says it provides comprehensive Layer 2, Lite Layer 3 and Layer 4 switching..should I be ok with that?  I also have a Sonicwall NSA 250 as the firewall.
