Are men supposed to be considered pretty? Handsome is more like it...

Could be. A more used translation is vakker - beautiful and kjekk - handsome.

how would they be used opposed to pen/pene?

Pen/pene - pretty. Same differences as in English when it comes to meaning, I think. They are all obviously positive descriptions, it depends on what you want to convey.
