I find it easier to apply the finishes prior to installing the pegs.
Do not paint the tenon which is the part of the peg that goes in the hole.
Do not paint inside the hole.
A small amount of wood glues should be used to attach the pegs.
The glue should be applied to the sides of the hole.
Do not fill the hole as this will prevent you from installing the pegs.
I push down and use a twisting motion when installing the pegs. If the pegs are tight you may use a slight rocking motion to help seat the pegs from time to time I find it necessary to sand the tenon a little bit to make the pegs fix in the hole easier. Keep in mind we want a good fit, to loose and the pegs will come loose.

Thank you for the question.
The pegs extend straight out 3" from the back rail. The back rail is 3/4 of an inch think, for a total depth of 3.75 inches. The head of the shaker peg is about 7/8 of an inch in diameter.
