I heard that too much pine needles will mess up the soil acidity
Unlikely in LA region, but depends on what soil your dealing with. Have your soil tested.

How I can I tell if I need to add anything to the soil so that it will be new-lawn friendly
Have your soil tested.

I don't know what kind of lawn to plant but I do know that I want soft grass that grows in Southern California
Fescue is fairly typical in CA

Am I too worried about my soil?
Probably, but I would test it so at least you know what your dealing with.

Should I be throwing this stuff away?
Absolutely not. Leave the needles, don't plant turf under confers.
