Right.  You will run two Apache servers.  They have separate configs 
(separate /etc/apache* dirs) and separate logs.  The don't conflict with 
each other.

Depends.  The Debian pakcages work nicely out of the box, I found.

What I did is just add some redirects from the http server to https 
server for things that need to be ssl.

As for books, I'll suggest Writing Apache Modules with Perl and C as a 
fantastic book to learn about the internal workings of Apache.  It's not 
much administration, but if you understand the internals of how it works 
it makes it a lot easier to know how and what needs to be controlled...
