Will I get notified when the other parent accepts the request?

No notification is sent when the shared parenting request is either accepted or rejected.   You will however be able to see the Currently managed by field on the user’s dashboard when the other party has accepted.

I’m looking at my child’s settings but I can’t see where to add an email address, why not?

This will be because you are not the primary parent for that child and only the primary parent can add shared parents.
