If the system acts as your router, then you need a second NIC. But I assume it's in yur LAN behind a router, so you need just one NIC and configure your router to forward port 80 (for HTTP) to the system.

The problem could be that if you run a vulnerable web application on the server, people could have access to your data or even delete it. You could try to run Apache chrooted: http://www.howtoforge.com/chrooting-...ot-debian-etch

Yes. Just install the missing packages.
