Black has a natural advantage in playing first. So in games between players of the same strength, it is usual to compensate White for the disadvantage of playing second by adding points to White's score. These points are called komi. From experience the value of playing first is about 7 points, so this is the normal size of komi. In tournaments, komi is often set at 7.5 points to avoid draws.
Will this also be added here?

Yeah, for standard board size komi is 7.5 points and is awarded to the player that goes second (white). This definitely should be added because it would give an inherent advantage to whomever goes first.

What would be a good amount for a smaller board size? Say 15x15
