Both features are independent of each other. You are not syncing by sharing information. When you open the FamilySearch or Ancestry tools you can share data back and forth to keep the database and the website current.
The Ancestry API allows the sharing of sources and images.
The FamilySearch Person Tools will require you to go to the Sources tab to add the sources back and forth. They do not automatically come into RM when you add a person. The Memories portion of Family Tree has not been added to RM yet. You would need to upload images on the website for now.

For example, can a source come over from ancestry and then be sent to FS by using the sources tab without reentry of the data?

Yes, since they use separate tools and don't effect each other you can work with any provider's API inside of RM. That means FamilySearch, Ancestry and the other WebHint providers.
You select which information you want to add and share with FamilySearch and Ancestry.
