There should be a form on their web site for changing the nameservers of a
domain you own.  You'll first need to register the hostnames and addresses
of your servers.

I think most hosting companies run their own primary DNS server.  And they
either run their own secondary server as well, or make use of their ISP to
provide secondary DNS.  I think most of the domains that registrars host
are for small companies, private individuals, or domains that are parked
until the owner gets their server set up.
