Richard,

Ad.1 No WAE is not a router. It has some features of a router but will not perform advanced routing.

It is not required to have a Cisco router in branch office (i.e you can run using an inline card), although scalability might require that you do have to use WCCP from a router especially on HQ/DC side.

Ad.2 Typically you have WAEs in both HQ side and branch offices + one WAE to manage all of them (CM) . Connectivity between WAEs is transparent to end users/servers.
