1 - You need a vpn client and the server needs to be setup to allow for that client.

2 - You do not anything more from your ISP. You manage your router and cable. If your ISP is using any kind of firewall, it needs to be setup for the VPN traffic... but if you manage your own firewall or there's no firewall, then VPN will work fine.

People may say differnt things depending on their understanding of what you have. But if you arelready having a working ISP and internet connection, you should only need the VPN client/server software and you should be good to go.
