In order of your questions:

Yes, you need a perl executable (http://www.activestate.com)

You don't need one, just use Notepad and save as name.cgi or name.pl

You can use a standard FTP-program and then when the files are on the server (in you cgi-bin) you have to CMOD them to 755

Hope this is enough information, though I guess not :p
