This group is actually for upright bass questions, but I can answer your questions.

Set up usually means a truss rod adjustment; a more advanced setup might also involve altering/replacing the bridge saddle and working on frets, if necessary.

A set neck joint is one that is glued in, as opposed to a bolt-on or neck-through instrument.
