Adding in overhead console

Couple of question's I have, I'm adding an overhead console, the simple one, not the compass one. I've had my headliner down in the past but can't recall what was behind it. The console I have has the black mounting plastic bracket with it that will simply clip in, but does my roof already have the holes? Will I just have to cut a hole in my headliner or what? It's supposed to be in the 50's on Saturday so I wanted to see what I might be up against before I tear it down.

When I installed mine I measure and traced it out, cut the headliner and there is a cross support that you can screw it too

what information does the overhead console give you. I dont have one in my truck but have thought of trying to find one but not sure its worth the effort if its minimal info. I have my edge insight for all the engine info except mpg.
