Wooden beams: How to fix/Load bearing?

HU-409965826
last month

I have wooden beams across the ceiling as well as down the walls. They look to be separating from both the ceiling and the wall.
As I understand it, if they are load bearing beams they wouldn't be separating from the ceiling however, if they are load bearing and they are separating, that's a huge problem...
So how do I locate ceiling joists to tell if these beams are faux or load bearing?
Now, if they're faux, how do I fix the separation? Add screws?
