You'll need a web server.

For CGI, you just need your server configured for CGI, nothing
Python-specific. It would surprise me if XAMPP didn't set up a working
cgi-bin for your programming pleasure anyway.

No. mod_python is a completely different approach to running Python from
the web. Don't use it, it's dead. If you want something similar, use
mod_wsgi.

Come to think of it, you should probably look into WSGI anyway -- you
can run WSGI scripts via CGI for the time being, that's simple enough,
and switch to something else for production, or for serious development,
later on.
