When you are in a wing, you will both receive the bounty/combat bonds for any ships that you both (or all, in the case of wings of 3-4) fire on and destroy. Typically, it's best to focus on the same targets and kill them together as a team.
Your targets will not be selected for you. The best way to select your wingman's target is to setup a few simple hotkeys.
I use F1-F3 for "select wingman" and F4 for 'wingman's target'. When winged up, you'll need to hit your hotkey for the wingman first, then your hotkey for his target, even if you only have one wingman. Having this setup in your bindings will make you a more successful wingman.
This screenshot shows you what your screen will look like when you are in a wing (but your HUD colors are probably different).
The two icons at the top center of the screen (in this case, Cyberofh and Varn Draal) shows rings for my wingmen's shield condition, and hull condition below that. Below their commander names shows the ship that they have targeted. In a CZ, it will just show generic navy names, so that's why it's important to setup the hotkeys mentioned above. Otherwise, it's hard to know which opposing NPC your wingman has selected to kill.
I hope that helps a little.
I should be logging into the game in about an hour, and bringing the Vette to Azrael if anyone (of any combat skill level ) would like to wing up.
