Here are some ideas about the Arcane, see how you like them.

In wildspace there are the occassional sargassoes that Spelljamming
vehicles avoid like the plague, because in many if not all of these
sargassoes Spelljamming Helms do not work.  I would hazard a guess
that the reason for the Spelljamming Helm failure would be that
someone is trying to hide something.  Namely the Arcane.  It is my
idea that inside these sargassoes the Arcane have bases/worlds where
they do their work.  How do the Arcane travel within a sargasso, you
ask.  Being masters of TechnoMagic devices they have items on there
person that allow some kind of motive force to propel their ships.

As to the creation of Helms, maybe a process involving the Energy Planes,
positive or negative or both, is worked out within these sargassoes where
the destruction powers of these planes fails to work (i.e. the finished
helm doesn't work here either).

That's all I could come up with on short notices, if you like it I could
put more thought and polish behind it and post a REAL story/background on
the Arcane.

As to the Air/water for a Dwarven Citadel, they work just like any other
Spelljamming vehicle.  They must visit planets with good air and water.
As to how they extend there supply, the usual plants and fungi would do
well to create some new oxygen.  Water, well cleric spells do well to
create water as do many magic items (decanter of endless water comes to
mind quickly).
