If you have a war file, simply copy it into tomcat's webapps directory.
Links in your servlets, JSPs, HTML pages should be appropriately
relative. Give us an example of a link that doesn't work: I bet it's a
link to /servlet/myservlet as opposed to /mywar/servlet/myservlet or
better yet ../servlet/myservlet.

You should map all your servlets in web.xml.

Yes, you can use it right out of the box: it's designed for that.

>must i install apache as well or is tomcat sufficient?

You don't need Apache at this point: tomcat by itself is fine.

>where should i look for a solution for my (for me: heavy) problem??

This is the place.
