P: n/a
So, do I get a binary of Postgres and install it, or do I have to get
the source and compile it while running under cygwin?

A binary. You need not to compile. Just download and install.

Is it easy to set up the 'localhost' connection to be served by apache
on the cygwin application and viewably by any browser from windows?
