I will answer your title question.
To install it the easiest way is as follows:

Download and install flashtool.
Root your phone.
Place the apk you want to install at .../flashtool/custom/apps.
Connect your phone to the PC over USB
Then open flashtool.
Select the icon which looks like an arrow (the 5th one from right).
And then click on OK, and the app will be installed. You will get the log in the main screen of flashtool.

Thanks,
Rick

You can use Android Injector (freeware).

It's fast and easy. Install Android Injector, connect your device to PC via USB, choose the file you want to install and that's all.;)
