When figuring out the available amperage at a 220V receptacle, do you add each amperage on each of the poles of the 2 pole breaker, or is the number on each of the poles the total amout of amperage available?? For example, would a 2 pole, 15 amp breaker (15 on each pole) serve a 30 amp appliance??

The amp rating on the breaker is the rating of the circuit. You do not add the ratings. A 2-pole 15A breaker is just that.
