I am going to LA in a few weeks and I want to add easy roam to my account. When I add it, to I have to go to the iPhone cellular settings and turn on the “data roaming” option in settings > Cellular > Cellular data options > Data roaming? Or if I add it to my plan, will it start working automatically and I don’t have to change anything?

You only need to turn it on (which is done manually) if you want to use data while roaming, if you don't want to use data then just leave it off and the calling and texts will work.

I am not sure with your answer. When you have a easy roam, meaning you can text, call, use data without changing nothing right? But how come wwe need to turn on the data roaming? If we turn on data roaming, am i getting charges of data?
Easy roam with data roaming on? No charges of data right? Only 7$/per day or 10$/day

No charges for data up to the amount included in your plan. 

And yes, you have to turn the Data Roaming switch to the ON position for data to work when travelling outside Canada.
