Apache automatically manages its processes.  But if the processes are
constantly using cpu, that implies that they are stuck someplace (and
very likely in a third party module) and hence won't be subject to the
regular controls.  You should do some more debugging (log files,
mod_status, debugger, etc) to try to figure out what the processes are
doing.  (You are also running a very old version, which doesn't help.)
