I don't think it is separate from PHP itself.  The Zend engine was a
rewrite of the PHP execution engine with resource/mem management and the
API for loadable extensions, etc...  Later adding the PHP 5 OOP stuff.

It is an extension available on the Zend download page.

Yes, it is a install of PHP with alot of other stuff bundled in.  So it
depends upon what you need and if you want to install/configure PHP
yourself with all of these additions, or if you just want to install the
Zend server.
