So I have been free hand sharpening on stones for a few months, but I am not exactly sure what I need to be doing with regard to micro bevels. Is this necessary? How do I form/change the micro bevel of a knife if I want to create a steeper edge? I try to sharpen in general at a 15 degree angle.

A micro bevel is done at a steeper angle than your initial sharpening. If you're sharpening a reasonably thin knife (most any gyuto for instance) and you sharpen at 15 degrees, raise to maybe 20 degrees on your finest stone and make a few stropping strokes at that angle per side. It will only take a few strokes for a thin knife.
