I think you mean "link" and pin. Very easy to install, after you insert the pin through the lug and the link, just use a center punch on the side of the lug by the hole to distort the metal enough to keep the pin in place.

Selecting the correct length link is part of the process of fitting a barrel to achieve correct lockup. I've never done it so I am reluctant to advise further except to say that it may be a process of trial and error. I'm sure someone else here will have something to say on the subject.
