1. A turbo "kit" usually comes with all of the parts needed to install the turbo.
2. Exactly what you get will usually depend upon the level of the kit you order.
3. There are two small turbine type wheels sharing a common shaft in a turbo. The "Hot" side turbine is connected to your exhaust pipe. Hot engine exhaust flows through the hot side of the turbo under pressure causing the turbine wheel to spin, which in turn spins the "compressor" turbine on the other end of the shaft. The compressor side turbine sucks in outside air, compressing it as it passes through and forces it into your engine through tubing ran from the compressor side of the turbo to the throttle body or carburetor and into the engine under pressure.
A lot of people claim that turbos make "free" horsepower. That is not entirely true. There are some parasitic losses from the exhaust restriction and the added weight of the system, but they are more than overcome by the extra power produced. Turbos are smoother and easier on your engine, because they do not induce any additional harmonic vibrations or strain on the front of your crankshaft like belt driven superchargers do.
Here are a couple of a couple of links to reputable kit manufacturers.
