Don't know the 207, but on the 206 the bonnet is secured by 4 fixed (to the bonnet) bolts, 2 on each side, going through pieces on the hinge mechanisms and secured by nuts. Trick is in getting it aligned properly. I'd not fully tighten the nuts initially, but just to a 'friction grab', then carefully close it and check the gaps, If needed shift it (hence the friction grab tightening) with some plastic pry tools, carefully open up and tighten nuts fully.

An assistant (or two) is recommended since it's big and unwieldy.

Don't forget to take the washer jet pipes off first.

Should just be slip fit. If unlucky the plastic of the spray nozzles might be brittle and you could snap the connector, so be careful. A little heat might soften the tube and make it easier to get off.

The release cable goes to the lock/mechanism that is usually (can't say positively for the 207) mounted to the body of the car (upper cross member).
