Exactly how does one install and tension the hide on a banjo of this construction? Just put the flesh hoop in place, wet the hide, lay it flat, and press the brass ring down? No adjustment beyond drying?

Your take on the situation is correct. I'll recommend that you don't tighten the screws all the way when the skin is wet so you can tighten the head a little when the skin is dry.
