After Lagering, do i bottle the same way as I would an Ale?

i.e. priming tank + corn sugar?

Then do I let the bottles carb at room temp or at fermentation temp or at lagering temp?

Carb at room temp. Everything in the process is the same as ales. You may need to give it an extra week or so. Make sure your sugar is well mixed before you fill the bottles.

What about the rumors of yeast addition in the priming tank?

Well, those are true rumors, some people do that, some breweries do that. All it will potentially do is help you carb faster. I don't do it because I like my lagers as clear as possible and extra sediment (in yeast form) can possibly compromise that. Additionally it is an extra step, I try to avoid unnecessary steps. I'm sure others do the opposite of me, this is one of those debates where people differ but either method will get you from A to B, it's just personal preference.
