Maybe not always, but probably since around when Grendel happened. Given certain comments about "Just like old times" or "not like it was in the old days," and Double's implied manipulation of Canopy royalty and Medici mafia into war with the Gigans... "Zane's" probably been around for a while. Double probably needed somebody willing to fight Gigans, and, as scared as most people were at the time, Beo would've been the only one willing to challenge them in the ring.
RE Bella's fighting skill- she did beat people up for the Mafia. It's worth mentioning the Medicis probably aren't the only Mafia in town, they're just the biggest and meanest. (See also: Fishbone Gang.) I think I read somewhere that Fortune would be her first kill, but she's still no stranger to violent random encounters. It's maybe not professional training like Parasoul's, but certainly street smarts. She also has hidden knives thanks to learning a few of Black Dahlia's ninja tricks. It's just easy to underestimate Cerebella because she gets tossed around like a certain Klingon aboard the Enterprise D. It'd be funny if she canonically has the flu and we find out in SG2 that Cerebella survives everybody else's story mode by staying home with a big bowl of chicken noodle soup.
