Either end of the stylus screws off - the bottom is where you place the battery, the top screws off so you can change the nib as they will eventually wear down and need replacing. The case has enough space for five spare nibs and battery.
Connecting the stylus to your iPad isn't the same as connecting other bluetooth devices. It won't show up in the list of bluetooth devices - you have to open a compatible app and connect there.
The stylus will work as a normal stylus, but without any of the benefits offered when connected via Bluetooth, but there are much cheaper ones available for this type of usage.
