Does the provider of the IRA take care of this automatically? Or do I have to fill out extra paper work?

Your broker takes care of it. The dividend shows up as a credit to your account, and the withholding tax shows up as a debit from your account.

What about non-dividend ADRs?

I'm not sure I understand the question that you're asking. Non-dividend ADRs can certainly be held in IRAs, and there are no complications that I'm aware of.
