Oh, pick me. This is one of the only questions I know the answer to...

Located here http://www.mediamonkey.com/wiki/index.php/WebHelp:

Select File > Add/Rescan files to the Library on the main menu, or press <Insert>.
Choose which Drive, Folder or Network Location you wish to add.
If you wish to enter a network path, type the path you wish to scan, enclosed in quotes and use the Add button.
Use the File Types button to select which Media Files should be added to your Library.
Use the Options button to change the options affecting scanning of files.
Enable Hide unselected items to only show folders selected to be scanned.
When files are added for the first time to the Library MediaMonkey will automatically set the type and put the file in the according Collection like Music, Classical Music or Videos. All files are visible in the Entire Library Collection.

Yes, however you also have Folder Monitoring enabled, so any changes should be picked up automatically.
