I've done the registration I think - do I understand that I don't need to roll the dice until the game dictates?

Yes, this is correct.  This game system is much more story-based than roll-based, so dice will likely only be used if there is some need to randomly determine an outcome, such as who manages to injure/kill whom in combat, or if you have succeeded in doing something like charming another person into doing something, bluffing your way through a situation, using a magical spell right (especially a new and unfamiliar one), etc.  I think in our scene writing, we can state we are attempting to do things of that sort, but we will need a dice roll to see if we actually succeed or not, and then subsequent scenes will reflect the results of that roll accordingly.  But having never played an RPG under quite these circumstances, that's more just a guess on my part. The closest thing I've done to this was a story-based RPG in Storium, and that's more or less how things got settled there, only depending on cards that were played rather than dice rolls.

I've done a few rolls in advance. Obviously I need to use them in order but one was 5+5 and another was 6+5 - because both die were 5 or 6, can use the throw more than once? Or is that cheating ?  ;D
