Yes, though if you're on a single box, you'll get much better  
performance with an in-process cache like APC for PHP. As soon as you  
need more than 1 box, memcached will be better.

It's very easy - once you have the binaries installed from rpm just  
like any other package, just start memcached with "/etc/init.d/ 
memcached start", then try "telnet localhost 11211" to talk to it  
manually to check it's working. Other than that, read the docs.
