I have always hosted any pictures I hosted on POTN up on Flickr. My question now is, Are we to host them on the forum itself now? Searched around and could not find any info on this subject.

Host them where you like. I use Flickr....many do. Some upload to the forum server.

Whatever floats your boat.

^ ^ True. Just remember, if you host them on the forum, you can only attach 2 per thread.

And, people who are not members of the forum, but view threads as guests won't be able to see your photos.

No. Per thread.
There are various options: In the "Share" areas IMAGE POSTING RULES specifically state: "Do not use the forum as your image gallery, post only the best of the best and link to the rest."
This means we allow 2 attachments by the OP per thread, OR 8 embedded (linked) images, OR a combination of 2 attachments + 6 embedded (linked) images, totaling 8 per thread. (Maximum 1280 pixels on any side.) You can always just post a link to more, though, or better yet, post a link to a gallery so we don't have to click on each image link.
Some exceptions are group threads, like "Show Me...", "Post your best...", equipment reviews, Tutorials, etc.
You may add a few additional photos if requested, but only in a reply to other member's post and request.
