Question about Garden
The conventional way to attach the siding is with a galvanized nail, however, with the nature of that particular wood, splitting, warpage etc, combined with the elements in your area...you will be quite prone to "nail pops"...a nail being pulled slightly out and having to be put back down. This makes them difficult to seal. I like to use a galvanized or stainless wood or decking screw, that will never pop out, and torqued properly, will not require sealing! As for your stain, because of where you are at, I would select a good grade of oil base sealer..with the stain tint of your choice. This can be rolled, brushed or sprayed. Your surface should not have to be prepped, other than the maintennance of securing the loose ones. It is recommended when re-attaching, to drill a pilot hole to put the screw in to reduce the chance of splitting the shingle. Good Luck, I hope you find this to be very helpful!

Shingles and salty air, sunshine can really beat up shingles!
If this were my house, this is what I'd do:
First for the loose shingles:
Try securing with galvanized screws. BUT IT WILL BE VERY IMPORTANT TO PREDRILL AND COUNTERSINK YOUR SCREWS.
These shingles will split like crazy and your only hope will be to predrill and countersink. You can even put a bead of exterior grade elastomeric type caulking under the bottom edge of the shingles to hold them.
Secondly for the paint: Test a small section first and check the results before doing the whole thing.
Good luck on this.
