The holy Qur'an is the primary source of studying and comprehending religion but it needs to be explained and interpreted by those who are connected with the Creator of the Qur'an; so here we reach to the position of Sunnah that is clarified by the Hadith of Thaqalayn and other Ahaadith in this regard.

With Duas.

Both, always both. That is what the Prophet(sawa) commanded us.

Only Umar system takes only the Quran as he said in "pen and paper hadith" and rejected the sunnah/narrations of the ProphetÕáì Çááå Úáíå æÂáå

Honestly, many shia now days are following the Umar system in tafseer and many religion points. 

Always Book of Allah + Ahlulbayt in everything in religion.

The Qur'an is the ultimate source of guidance for Muslims, its meanings are clear where it wishes to be clear, and there are verses which can have different meanings where the people who are invested with knowledge can interpret them properly using the Qur'an itself and reason. An example of this is the verse where it says that Allah created Adam [as] with his hands, this can be interpreted differently (by differently I mean wrongly, but none the less differently) compared to a verse where it says clearly to do "X" action which cannot be interpreted differently. When someone comes across a verse that can be interpreted wrongly, when they use their intellect they will find that the verse clearly is not speaking literally but rather speaking about the power and will of Allah. 

Where then does the Sunnah have a function here if the Qur'an paired with proper reason can be interpreted correctly? The Sunnah protects the interpretation of both the clear verses and the unclear verses because even if a text is clear there may be some ignorance and wishful thinking in the person's heart and even more so when it comes to the unclear verses where reason is needed, this for him of course would only serve as more of a playground for the person who attaches himself to false groups and inclinations when the verses require reason. Take for example the clear verse in the Qur'an that says we should wipe the feet, they tried so hard to play with this verse using superficial grammar rules and actually mae themselves to believe that it says wash and not wipe.

Another function of the Sunnah is that it gives us the details for laws, the Qur'an says to pray but the Sunnah shows us how. So it isn't true that you can't understand the Qur'an without the Sunnah, you can understand the Qur'an clearly since Allah's words are clear, the Sunnah simply acts as a support and is considered the lesser weight.
