How does each yana deal with each affliction?

The four means of converting beings to the Dharma are generosity (which itself as four aspects: giving material gifts, conferring fearlessness, loving kindness and teaching Dharma), pleasant speech, conduct and setting an example.

This is all dealt with in The Words of My Perfect Teacher and A Guide to the WOMPT.
Kye ma!
The river of continuity is marked by impermanence.
Ceaseless flowing of appearance.
Beautiful and repulsive.
The dance of life and death is a display of the vast expanse.
With gratitude the watcher and the watched pass through the barrier of duality.

Yes. It covers the afflictions from the scope of different yanas and beings of different capacities while discussing the different outcomes for those dispositions.

You should read the whole thing.
But in Khenpo Ngakchungs guide you can get information on the defilements in the sections covering the defects of samsara, karma, and benefits of liberation, basically the entire section on the common preliminaries. The same is true in WOMPT.
Both books discuss afflictions, defilements, negative emotions in the context of various different aspects of fundamental dharma and explain how they are approached by different yanas and capacities.
