"show failover" will show you the status of failover, it will show you the peers, it will show you the status messages receives and transmits. Of course there are "debug fover" commands, but I wouldn't suggest them unless you are troubleshooting. "sh fail history" is one more useful command.
Now for setting it up, you need to have the active unit configured and make sure the vlans are pushed to both FWSMs and trunked between the switches (so that both FWSMs can see and "handle" the same traffic). Then you just configure the failover commands on the primary and secondary. You do not need to replicate the config to the standby because as soon as they establish failover it will copy over. Make sure you don't forget to have standby ip addresses on your interfaces.
