For the brake type, look at the hole (singular) and it tell you all you need to know.

In your other post you also were having a problem with the authenticity of this frame. Regardless of that issue.... by the level and depth of your question I would seriously think about having a realiable shop build this for you. You can have your fun and buy the parts yourself, but I would not attempt the assembly. You could ruin the frame by simply not knowing the correct torque values for a component or part and basically break the frame and render it useless.
