The babies should be okay foodwise for the first couple of days (with what's in their stomachs sustaining them).
After that some finely crushed up tetra flake should be fine.
Keep them in the trap until you can rehouse them safely into another tank to grow them on, or safely release them into your own tank (about 2 months). NB, they tend to grow faster when among larger fish.
Sorry I can't advise re: ich outbreak. Livebearers tend to have three or four pregnancies from one fertilisation, so if things do go belly up (as it were) you should get another opportunity.
