Availing the offer is easy, you just need to follow the steps listed here but just to give you a brief, you need to download the Mi Jio app from the Play Store, tap on Get Jio SIM and then follow the instructions. We also have an activation guide in the previous link, so please do check it out.
VoLTE support on your phone is not mandatory to use Jio services as you can make calls through the Jio Join app.
At present there is no word on when exactly the Jio 4G services will be going live without the preview offer, but till its available, there's no harm in testing out their services. From what we have come to know, data prices will be very low for Jio. Something in the realm of 10s of GBs for Rs. 400 - 500.
