You can get power from the alternator output or from the battery cable terminal on the starter solenoid if it's hot all the time. Probably need a 12 gauge wire for the fans.

Yes, you can tie the 2 relay power wires to one wire.

I have a number 8 wire from trunk to radiator support terminal block. This term block feeds my fans. And yes there is a fuse in the trunk at the battery
