If you root with the newtool it will install recovery as well.
Dual recovery is just a recovery package that gives you the option of 3 recoveries
You do not need to unlock the bootloader to get recovery, but you do if you want to flash a custom kernel.

From the development section yes.

If you want to flash custom roms from the original development section you need to unlock the bootloader

The difference is the kernel. Locked bootloaders will not boot on a custom kernel. In order to unlock your bootloader just Google "Sony unlock bootloader "
