I think that your questions have very little to do with mod_perl, which is the focus of 
this help list.
You are probably better off asking this on the general Apache httpd forum.

As a purely personal note : if you are really as new as inexperienced as you claim to be 
above, it looks to me as if what you are trying to set up is already fairly complex for a

first exercise.
My suggestion would be to first stick to one webserver on one box, hosting one 
application, and when you really understand how it all works, then start to add more 
applications and/or move pieces around.
It will also be easier for you to find help at each stage, rather than asking for such 
general kind of help which would take days of someone's time.
