How the miners are accessed in case of hosted mining, as advertised by many hosted bitcoin miner providers?

Usually they are not accessible.
They point to a pool they pick for you, possibly because they make money in other ways (merged-mining).
Or, you purchased a share of a large machine which has to be subdivided and must point to a pool of the hosting companies choosing. They do the math there and pay you on your share.
If you own the entire machine at the hosting company then maybe, they will let you point it to anything you want, this is hard to find I think...

Depends on the hoster. Many will offer you a web interface to control some aspects of your miner, while others will give you discrete IP address/port to use to access your miner via its own web interface, and some will additionally give you an IP address/port for ssh access. Often they will give you all of them. Check with your hosting company as to what they offer before you sign up.
