1)Beryl is not an application, it is an window manager.
2)No.

beryl is basically part of the OS and graphics of the system once it's installed
where as windows has explorer for everything, linux has different levels, there's "X" which is the utter basic thing, then generally Gnome or KDE, then things like XGL, and beryl..

Beryl's (or any window manager, for that matter) equivalent in Windows is GDI,

In Linux, the hierarchy is (without the CLI stuff):
Kernel -> userland interfaces (various syscalls) -> X11 -> Xgl (if in use) -> WM (e.g. Beryl) -> Desktop environment (e.g. KDE or GNOME) -> Applications
In Windows:
Kernel -> user32 -> GDI (WM equivalent) -> Explorer (DE equivalent) -> Applications

Windows has some visual effect interfaces (I mean, outside of Vista), but they're outdated and never been used (see the AnimateWindow() win32 call).

It should be enough to enable the universe repository, install the beryl metapackage and to add beryl-manager to Gnome's (if you use it) autostarted applications. Maybe you'll have to enable Composite in your xorg.conf.
