Chrome-moly pushrods for a hotcam kit? Really? It's a very mild camshaft with self-aligning rockers!
1) To the OP, I'm not sure where you got those part numbers. As far as I can ascertain, those pushrods are 7.178" in length and non-hardened. Those are not ideal. Factory pushrods are 7.200", so the missing ~22 thousandths might have a minor effect on rocker geometry. If you're going to spend the money might as well at least get hardened steel.
Standard $40 hardened pushrods from Comp will do just fine -- I ran the hotcam that way for 3 or 4 years (with stronger valvesprings). If you've a 1994-1995, look for a dimple along the shank of your factory pushrods -- they may be hardened from factory. You can test for straightness on a glass table + a flashlight. If they're straight, reuse them.
2) If your factory lifters aren't in too bad of shape, they can be reused, though it is not a horrible idea to replace them (as they've been worn into the old camshaft).
The lifter part number you listed is actually for a full kit with link-bars/spider retainer and whatnot, which is unnecessary unless you're missing those parts. Otherwise, the kit looks like it'll work just fine. The lifter part number alone appears to be 17120735, if you want to order the lifters separately.
