The proper text to say when lighting the candles before Rosh Hashana is "lehadlik ner shel Yom Tov." One should not mention Yom Hazikaron. As always, when lighting the candles one should first say the blessing and then light the candles. Not the other way around. The beracha of shehehiyanu should not be said at the time of lighting. Instead, everyone should listen and fulfill their obligation with the shehehyanu that is said during kiddush.
