You can either use the normal ACF functions, you just need to make sure you access them after all the plugins are loaded or depending on the type of field your using you can use the standard WP get_options() https://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/get_option
Values set on options pages are stored in you options table. The formatting of the value will depend on the field type. If you have things like repeater fields then using get_option could be a bit complicated.
I don’t include ACF premium plugin in my own plugin, instead I state that they are required. It saves me the hassle of needing to redistribute them or update my plugins when they’re updated. It’s a personal choice, but I include the fact that these are required in the plugin description and leave it up to the user to get the premium add-ons themselves. Most of my plugins are not available from the WP repository because of this, in fact, many of them are not publicly available at all.
