Do direct fire mortar teams (i.e., the G! ones) need to draw cards to determine if they hit? Are they looking for grenade symbols and effect the target card like a grenade, or the artillery hit symbol? Or do they just place a G! VoF onto the target card automatically?

You're looking for 6.7.4 - On-Map Mortars (p26 of the 2.1 rules). The gist is that Direct Lay of mortars work just like any other Direct Fire, except that they can fire over friendly units. So you'd just place the VOF as rated on the unit's counter as well as a PDF (making it eligible to create a Crossfire).

Were you watching the Lonesome Gamer's videos too? :)
