ExecuteFlumeSource - does flume need to be installed, how to invoke custom flume plugin

I have a custom flume plugin that I need to invoke from Nifi ExecuteFlumeSource. I have a few questions: --Does ExecuteFlumeSource require apache flume installed somewhere on the same server? If yes, how does Nifi find the installation path? If I add custom plugin to flume, can I invoke the plugin from Nifi? --If Nifi uses its own flume jar library, how do I add custom flume plugin?

Thanks in advance.
