There are ice crystals on my French fries, is it still ok to cook them?

You can cook them, yes, but ice crystals on food is a sign of freezer burn. While not harmful, it can cause changes to the flavor and texture of your food. If you fries have ice crystals on them, you may want to consider getting another bag, but you do not have to.

Is it healthier to use an air fryer than a deep fryer for my French fries?

Yes, it is a lot healthier to use an air fryer instead of a deep fryer. This is because you use a small fraction of the oil that a deep fryer uses. 

One thing to watch out for, if you are concerned about fat or calories, then you want to check the bag. Frozen fries often have at least some oil in them already, so you will want to look for ones with the lowest fat/calorie count out of the bag.
