Yes you are right. The Initial Data should be empty if you import your fields with the VolumeSource.

For example, using DOP Import Fields to import the volumes from DOP I usually put:
In DOP Network the path for it -> /obj/dopnet_pyrosim
In Default Object the name of the SmokeObject -> smokeobject
Then you can select one of the presets in the dropdown menu -> Pyro for example

That should be enough

However when I was trying to cache my sim using a File SOP and a DOPImportField, it wouldn't play the cache unless I added my SOURCE (PyroSource's Null) to the Density/Temperature SOP Path. Once I did that it would play the cache I had saved.

This part is not really that clear. Usually there isn't the need to use the Density and Temperature SOP path you mentioned.

If you use the VolumeSource, have you selected the PyroSource's Null in “SOP path” (always inside the VolumeSource)?

If yes and you can see the simulation running correctly inside the DOP network, I guess is a problem with the DOPImportField. Maybe you aren't importing the right fields from DOP?

PyroFX shop shader (fireball) issue Jan. 1, 2019, 10:13 a.m.

Now all the shaders have been moved from the “shop” menu to the “mat” menu. If you used the shelf tool for creating the explosion, here you should find the fireball shader created by default.
