You have to build depots, cost you two suply wagons, unless you capture one of the enemy's depots.
Yes, but I'm afraid it's more complicated than that. Re BoA Instructions Manual v. 1.09, Supply Sources: Supply is generated in two types of supply chips -- full and basic -- which contain either supply points (basic) or supply and ammo points (full). Being out of either in a fight, esp. ammo, can prove disasterous.
Forts and depots in towns not under seige contribute 5 and 10 supply chips, respectively, to the region they are located in.
Finding depots in towns visually is a little tricky, but if there are buildings aligned along all 4 sides and very little space in the middle, it probably has a depot; forts are more obvious, but isn't there be a tool tip that tells what's in the town when your mouse hovers over it?
Finally, instead of hunting for depots w/the map, use the supply filter to see what armies are in regions that are poorly supplied. Otherwise, you can tell what specific units are out of ammo/supply by clicking on the unit and examing the icons in the upper right of the message panel; all green indicates full ammo/ supply, but red means you're out of ammo/supply.
Hope that helps.
