    These aren't really the right forums for these questions, but I'll answer one last time...


    1) either of your examples will work, except it is cgi-sys and not cgi-bin

    2) There are some instructions at the following link. That is the script that the cpanel one was roughly based on.
    http://www.scriptarchive.com/readme/formmail.html
    Scroll down to 'Form Configuration'

    Good luck,
