? from BMI newbie: transfer from UA to BMI at LHR

I am flying UA from ORD to LHR in March. Need to transfer to BD175 from LHR to CDG. No checked luggage.
A couple of questions:
- do I need to clear customs and go get my BMI boarding pass at the land side of the terminal ?
- if not, what do I do with my carry-on luggage: 22" rollaboard and a good size laptop case ? My understanding is that BMI allows only one bag in Y. What do I have to do with my other one? Check it at the gate? Is it possible?
- would I be allowed to visit BMI lounge as *G ? How far is this lounge from the UA Red Carpet Club? Which one is better ?
- would I get any break with my sitting assignment as *G ? Or is it "free for all" at the gate?

Thanks in advance for you help.
