This is mostly not correct. First of all, the address is a hash of the public key only. Also, if one has a private key, the corresponding public key can be computed directly.

Channel funding (and the distribution of funds) is determined at the time of channel opening. Once opened, a party cannot ‘add funds’ to the channel, this would require opening a new channel.

BEAM had a private pre-sale, selling tokens to investors. They do not publish any of this information, but in their telegram and elsewhere there were estimates of 25 cents per token for a total of ~5 million dollars.
