Sonicwave access points setup and Guest access question.

Hello, It's been a while since I worked on Sonicwall, and I'm tasked to replace existing sonicpoints access points with the new sonicwaves. 

We currently have the wifi management done at the firewall, but I'd like to manage the new sonicwaves from the cloud console. I registered the new sonicwave devices and see them in the cloud management portal, but they're not downloading the radio profile configuration.

I have a few questions about sonicpoint\sonicwave:

1. can the sonicwaves be managed on both the firewall access point settings and the cloud management console? Or is it one or the other?

2. I see them in the cloud management console, but they don't download the radio configuration in the profile, any ideas? 

3. We want to create a guest SSID, do the sonicwave offer an option to create a simple isolated guest network from the cloud console or do I need to create that configuration on the firewall side? For instance, meraki APs allow you to create a simple guest network isolated from any other network from the cloud console, I don't see that option for sonicwaves.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
