You either install python22.dll in a local folder. When you start
Python from there, it will be stackless.
If you want to install it permanently, rename the dll in
windows/system32 and copy the new dll there.

In the version you have, there is a stacklessmodule.pyd which
should be in the local folder or be copied into /python22/DLLs.
This is temporary, the new version which I'm about to upload
tomorrow does not have that external file, since it is all moced into
the core dll, for simplicity.

There are a few test programs, if you download the CVS tree.
There is no public release, yet, this is still pre-alpha
You can get all internal documentation by
 >>> help(stackless)

Yes, it should be. If not, let me know.
