What settings should I use for manual focus lenses on a Nikon DSLR?

I have a Nikon D5100 (which has no AF motor in the body) and a Tamron 90mm SP macro lens. The lens has no AF focus motor either, and has an aperture ring.

What settings should I use in order to to use the lens correctly? Should the aperture size on the lens always be the same as on the body? Can I use aperture priority, or should I always use manual?
