what area of philosophy do these questions come under?
1. What is meaning? How much would it matter if we had none?
2. Should I be held responsible for what I believe?

do you think the 2nd question also deals with themes of determinism?

Questions about determinism are usually about being held responsible for actions rather than beliefs, so it's an odd one, but yes I think it's about free will and moral responsibility, determinism, especially psychological determinism, and perhaps even political philosophy and freedom of thought.

It's not hard to see how factors such as where you are born to have an impact in your belief systems, so yes it could deal with themes in determinism.

It can be, but in a more narrow epistemological sense
