Ranger A/C issue

I've got a 99 Ranger that was stolen & wrecked. Have got it 95% back together- mostly just minor & cosmetic stuff now (fender flares, decals, fog lights, etc). But when it was wrecked in the left front, I had to replce the radiator & condenser, so my AC system was empty.

I just dumped a can of freon in it & it shows no pressure, so I guess I got a leak somewhere.
1) What's the easiest way to detect the leak? I don't want to keep wasting freon looking, listening & guessing.

2) How much will it take to fully pressurize an empty system? That way I know if I should get a 12oz, an 18oz, or several cans.

Any other tricks & tips would be greatly appreciated.
