Voir dire is a Latin phrase that refers to the process of jury selection. So yes, you are correct in your statement that the court has ordered you to prepare a list of questions that you would want to be asked of the prospective jurors. As to this, you should think about the issues within your case and what questions you might ask to help determine how the jurors might look at those issues.

.

As to the issue of authorities, this would refer to any law in support of your instructions. This might include any standard instructions you might find, any case law or any statutory law.
