Yes, exactly.

Right, the sentence detector expects the chars as input, not the tags.

For example:
"This is a sentence terminated by a new line\nAnd this is on more sentence."

If you pass them in during the training they are stored in the model 
package. All you need to
do is to instantiate the Sentence Detector and it should be ready to use.

BTW, there is also an UIMA integration in opennlp-uima, maybe that could 
work quite well for ctakes.
