Hello,

I'm using apache as my main web server and I'd like to install nginx to ONLY act as a reverse proxy. I don't want to use nginx for anything currently managed by apache.
How would I install this so it doesn't interfere my apache installation?

Thanks in advance!

There are a number of plugins that will do this for you but do keep in mind that this configuration is unsupported though can still be accomplished.

Maybe look at this for your needs Engintron (Nginx on cPanel)
If I install this, will it remain standalone and not impact my current apache configurations?

Yes I understand its unsupported, I'm just after a standalone version of Ngnix to use as a reverse proxy.
