Yes, the environment needs to be set up for the compiler. Typically,
there is a script called "setenv.cmd" or "vcvars32.bat" that can be
called from a batch based build, and a start menu entry "Visual Studio
Command Shell" or similar.
has some documentation.

Yes, but nmake is rather limited, and GNU make has a bootstrap script
