No, there's no need to isolate them. It's for EMI control.
You're talking about feeding a track a signal with edges that have energy
up through 500 MHz.
Adding some fixed resistance on the source end cuts down on the EMI quite a
bit, by slowing down the risetimes.
Check the PIC spec, but I know you don't need that fast a rise time. Stands
to reason, if it can take a crystal input, which is nearly a sine, then it
can probably take a pretty much slowed down square wave.
The resistors should all be on the driving end of the tracks, not the pic end.
As to value, if you have a scope, then as much as you can take.
If no scope, start out at about 100 ohms, and see what that does for you.
