is it an iso file if so just use decryptor(freeware) atr http://doom9.net or you can try Alcohol 120% and so on there are many burning program out there. If you say what kind of file you have that would help with a reply and what did you rip it with?
As far as using + or - it would be best decided on what version Playstation 2 you have.
As far as a patch, I cant help you there as I live in the States and the game will not be released untill February 23, 2005, but IMHO there will have to be a patch just because of what Sony has done latley woth new protections(but I am not sure because I dont have the game yet)
I bet you can find some good info at http://afterdawn.com
