When the new switch joins the fabric, it will send in an MR (merge request) and the switch in the fabric will respond with MR. The MR from the new switch should be empty, while the MR from the fabric switch should contain the currently active zoneset. You will not have to reactivate the zoneset to get it pushed to the new switch.
Device aliases are not sent with the zoneset MR sequence. They are propagated by CFS, and as I recall, this is enabled by default.
On the command line, you can issue the command 'show cfs applicaiton' and look for Enabled for device alias. This should be the same on all switches in the fabric (original and new).
