You first need to establish whether or not your qualification and your partners qualification needs assessment or they are exempt from assessment. You need to check on the exemption list for your country.
If the qualifications are already exempt then you can claim the points stated for them.
If they aren't exempt then you cannot have the points you quote. You must have assessment by NZQA first and await the outcome to establish what equivalent level your qualifications achieve.

If you can claim Level 7 for your qualification you may be able to get up to 25 extra points in the area of absolute skill shortage if you meet the requirements of an occupation off the LTSSL. In this case you must meet the requirements of the chosen occupation exactly.

No nzqa only assess qualifications. They do not assess experience. That is up to Immigration using the evidence you provide after ITA assuming you get that far, but you will need to submit your work experience evidence to nzqa for iqa assessment of your qualifications.

If you assess by PAR first you will need to apply twice as it is one qualification per application.
If or when you have IQA you can have up to 4 qualifications assessed per individual.
