Not all right now, just the ones not in the distribution that they want to use. 
These are mostly wrappers - 3rd party binaries are always distinct installs, 
sometimes automatic, as the wiki explains.

The tool XML is unchanged. But, the section for the tool is included in the 
master tool config XML, upon install, if I am interpreting this correctly. 
Again, the Tool Shed wiki is one of the best documented parts of Galaxy and has 
the details per use-case. You'll want to follow those instructions and follow 
the News Briefs for updates.

No problem! We are here to help. You'll  just find the development community 
even more helpful with local install and tool development feedback as you get 
more involved. That list gives your questions the best exposure to them. The 
Galaxy project is created from the inputs of many people - the core team and 
our community.

Best wishes for your project,
