I want to apply it to an attack roll, but only if +1 (or +2, if augmented) would actually help me to overcome the monster's defense. Do I know if the +1 (or +2) bonus would be enough to hit the monster, i.e. can I ask the DM to tell me?

Normally, we announce our attack roll+modifier and the DM says "it hits" or "it misses," and vice versa, the DM announces monsters' attack rolls and we say whether it hits our characters.
