The ribbing will have to expand to accommodate the increases. Are you knitting it flat or in the round? Will the increases be on the underarm side?

If you can tell us the pattern name and link it will help.

To keep in ribbing even after incs or decs you knit the sts the way they look on the left needle. If it looks like a knit, knit it - if it looks like a purl, purl it. Since this is at the edges of a row on the sleeve, you don't have to include the edge sts in the rib pattern as they'll be hidden in the seam. So just work the new stitches into the pattern - if you have edge st, new stitch and 3 knits, the new stitch will be a purl. If you're at the end of the row and it's 3 purls, new st, edge stitch, the new stitch will be knit. After you do a couple rows you should be able to see how it works.
