If you don't set up your ssh keys then you'll have problems getting ssh to work. Check out the instructions here for setting up GitHub for use with ssh. This will let you not have to enter your GH username/password multiple times.

As for forking or not, it all depends first on your workflow and how you want to work and if you have owner/maintainer privs on the source repo. If you aren't an owner/maintainer you definitely have to fork the repo.
