Some of the first Alien novels feature the space Jockys. They destroy or render the aliens disabled when they took over Earth with some kind of sonic blast mechanism.

It is speculated that the Jockey on the derilict was alone on his his journey, it was a cargo ship, delivering a batch of Xenomorph Eggs to an unknown destination when the protective barriers were breached and a facehugger managed to Escape, latching itself onto the Jocky, sealing his fate, it was then that the pilot made an emergency landing on the nearest planet, whilst sending out a distress singnal as a warning to anyone who would come close to Acheron (LV4-26)

Not much, to my knowledge. No, not in the actual movie, but in a novel or special Aliens short.

As far as jockeys are concearned, we know practically nothing, & the wherabouts of the alien which chestbursted from the one found are also unknown. There was also sufficient technology available to have Kane frozen until he could be operated on, the freezing method was actually suggested by Parker soon after Kane had been brought back on board with the facehugger attached to him. Nobody had a clue there was a chestburster gestating inside of him though, & so did not actually follow through with the plan.

It was a warning beacon which had been sent out by the space jockeys long ago, once the alien(s) had broken free & overtaken the ship. The fossilised space jockey which was discovered by the Nostromo's crew was the most likely sender of the call.
