Do I need a guy and a sheet on each side of spinnaker?

Hi

Have a Kent Ranger 24 ft IOR racer/cruiser boat.

I'm going to use the spinnaker soon. Do I really need a sheet and a guy line on each clew (each side-right and left)? What's the point? They seem to do the same thing.... and I have read that smaller boats just need a single line on each side of the spinnaker.

Would you guys raise it in front of set jib and main? Or would most people drop the jib and just raise it in front of the main?

Does anyone sail by spinnaker alone>
