Not sure about question 1, but for Intel RST, just go to their download website and download the driver (link) . Its a driver for the controller hub. Just install it like you would any other driver.

Lucid Virtu allows you to use iGPU when you have a discrete GPU installed. Primary purpose is to use Intel Quick Sync, which blows other encoding methods (CUDA, OpenCL, and software acceleration) out of water. Quick Sync needs iGPU.
