as they are referred to in the professionis a modifier, we can omit it and do not affect the whole sentence

  1. Get on board means to enter a vehicle such as a ship (the original sense), a train or a bus. Here it is used figuratively to mean that these designers started working on the internet, thought of as a vehicle carrying many people into new territory.

  2. Yes, this sentence has two VPs with the same subject NP. The two VPs are fairly long, but the structure is really no different from John went to McDonalds and ate lunch..
