    Typically you flash it with a ROM so you have working Google apps such as the market and several other things but not all ROMs require them.

    To install one you boot into recovery flash the ROM, then flash the GAPPS file before leaving recovery, and then you just boot up the phone normally.

    Does not matter the stage of the ROM, could be alpha, beta, or final. It is all about whether the dev of the ROM includes them in the actual ROM file or decides to do them in the separate GAPPS flash.

    I never really flash any GAPPS besides what the dev recommends or pairs with the ROM but I guess it couldn't hurt. I would make sure none of the apps in the GAPPS that were already present did not have any updates installed, that would probably mess up the flash.
