A 99 is a TJ instead of a YJ, and you posted in the YJ section. But to answer your questions.

If it didn't come from the factory with air, then there will not be any vents for it in the dash nor will it have the plumbing or wiring for AC. The YJ had add-on AC in it, the TJ is built more like a car inside.

What to look for would be frame rust. On the TJs specially the cross members. Like where the control arms hook to the frame. Have seen quite a few TJs with the front radius arms rotted almost completely off the frame. These are the ones that go from the front axle back to the frame.
