You can read /etc/resolv.conf and hostname(1)

Manually?  Some backends might support this via manual config right now.
If you mean via DHCP, then NM should be retrieving all DNS servers that
DHCP returns and stuffing them into /etc/resolv.conf.

Yes, by reading /etc/resolv.conf.  NM will write search info there if
the DHCP server provides it.
