Sounds good.

Anyway, what do you recommend? How long? On lifting days or not? 2, 3, 5 days a week? I know this should be a simple "just do it" kind of task, but I really do need some sort of guidance here.
I would suggest taking a whey shake after lifting and doing cardio then if you can. You're going to hydrate after training so you might as well get some quick protein in.

I think in your case cardio after lifting will help you maximize recovery.

3x a week is plenty for 20-30 minutes it steady state, or 10 to 20 minutes if HITT.

I recommend loaded HIIT cardio if possible. Sled dragging, tire flipping, farmer's walks, kettlebell swings.
