When you apply for a Permanent Residence then your spouse and kids can be included in the same application (same fee) and all of then get the same visa if you happen to get the visa grant in the future. You would be the main applicant and rest would be secondary applicants.

There are cases where people have also included a dependant sibling or parent. Getting a grant gets difficult in these cases though.

And if someone could possibly highlight what all formalities does the dependant spouse have to go through other that being noted as a co applicant on the application ?
Are there documentation (work experience / acamedics ....) for the spouse we need to furnish, does he/she need to take the IELTS ?

if you are filling on-line application then you are the main applicant, wife is secondary and children are dependent.
wife need to provide proof of English, either a letter from university stating medium of instruction was English or IELTS 4.5 overall.
