Default New to xc skiing....Noob waxing question

I have two questions:

1. I have a very low end classic xc ski set (karhu piqtu) with fish scales in the kick zone. I know these are meant to be waxless skis, but is it possible to wax them, or will the ski not even absorb the wax?

2. Last spring I got a great deal on some Fischer SCS skate skis, and now I want to learn how to skate ski. What is the quickest/cheapest way for a begginer to wax this kind of skate ski? I currently have a basic glide wax by swix and a few handmedown kick waxes. Any.... and I mean ANY help would be greatly appreciated!!!

ps, I do have a nice iron by swix and a scapping tool to use for wax application.

You can use a glide wax on these. Don`t bother with the usual X country wax techniques based on temperature since your fish scales do the traction work. A good all temp flouro wax on the glide sections will help you with better glide....
