If you have needs for Apache, use Apache - but there is no need for it just for rewriting urls. There are plenty of ways to rewrite in Squid - and you can always write your own. See http://www.squid-cache.org/related-software.html for a list of redirectors that are available out there.
Having used Squid heavily over the years, there is no need for added complexity of adding Apache in the mix unless there is something specifically you need from it. >From your description, Apache is YAGNI.
