a) The ship display shows you the firepower available to the ship per battery of guns and calibre of the weapons - but not the number of "barrels", if that what you are referring to. However, the data and combat systems do take into account the number of avaiable barrels when calculating the results.
b) Gun batteries are handled as a cumulative amount of calculated firepower per broadside for all available turrets. The calculated firepower takes into account the qualities and deficiencies of each gun battery.
c) When setting up a scenario it is actually faster to use the ship charts which can be printed out and that also offer similar details.
