What I mean is...
When one contacts you and you don't know who it is...How do you question them? Do you just meditate and ask questions? How does that work?

I'm very curious. Is it different for everyone. I keep reading about people being "touched" by one.
I find that fascinating.

Hehe I'll answer this.  When I reach out to the Haltija, I can do a few different things.  Last week I made a circle in the pine needles, sat down, and invited them to come to my circle if they wanted to while I meditated and then played my ocarina for them.  They seemed to appreciate it, but didn't come very close.  I them moved deeper into the forest upon this hill that I feel they are the most active on.  There are thousands of clovers everywhere, and it's very green and fresh.  I offered them sweet berry candy that I brought with me as an offering of friendship to them.  I can always feel them at that spot...hiding in the leaves, dancing on the breeze, rustling through the grass and clovers.

To ask them questions, I would suggest either meditation, a trance, or you could just ground yourself and relax, and then casually carry out a conversation with them.  I have done all but the trance yet, but if you want to really connect with spirits a shamanic trance is a wonderful way to do so. 

First and foremost, do what feels natural in that certain situation.  For beginning though, if you sense that these spirits are near I would causiously approach their land and ask if you are allowed to step in.  If you get a good feeling or answer, you may proceed.  I would thank them, and at this point I usually have a small offering ready for them.  I'd give that, and then sit down and either meditate or just talk to them.  Sometimes I just sit there and take all of my surrounding in.  You can do many, many things to approach them and these are only a few.  Everyone will have their different opinion, but since I work with land spirits frequently I found that these work very well.
