No, Snortsnarf is a perl script that parses and formats Snort alerts

Yes  but it's easy. From your snortsnarf dir:

cd Time-Modules
perl Makefile.PL
make test
make install

No ... just tell snortsnarf.pl where to find the alerts and where to put 
the html i.e. something *like* this:

./snortsnarf.pl -d /home/httpd/html/snortsnarf /var/log/snort/alert 

Good luck
