Depends on the reference style, if you're given free choice, look up Harvard referencing, better to have a known standard. I go between a few depending on the professor's preferred format, but in general, in text references go in as "(author lastname, year)" after the relevant sentence. For example, "The population of Australia is estimated to be 23.13 million (World Bank, 2015)". If you want to use the page number as it is in the article, you can put it after year. As far as the reference list goes, if it's a credible journal article, you should be able to put "Name (year). Title, in Journal, volume, number, page". If you can only get a web address, then you can reference that. Harvard, APA, ect, have standard referencing styles for all kinds of resources. In short, short in-text references are good and should go right after the information used from the resource. The entire article with title, webpage and publisher references belong after the entire paper.

Think about WHY you cite the sources. One reason is so that readers can know where you got each quote or each piece of information. Where does that suggest that you should put the citations?

I recomend using easybib.com. But, you need to let people know if you need to cite it in apa or mla, they are both different.

When the source you were using cited another source, did you track down that source and look through it too? If not, I don't see the point in citing it.

It depends on how accurate you want to be. If there's the potential of misleading people, you really ought to go back to the original source. You don't know if the secondary source took the original source out of context or misquoted it. If this is just for a homework problem or something, you're probably fine citing just the secondary source. If the secondary source is synthesizing different sources to reach a new conclusion, and that is the conclusion your paper makes also, then you should cite the secondary source. I think it would be wrong to cite the original source without first verifying it though.
