2. I am not using confluent, do i need to configure schema registry and why it is used?

Yes if data is in Avro format. It stores a versioned history of all schemas, provides multiple compatibility settings and allows evolution of schemas according to the configured compatibility settings and expanded Avro support. Read More

You only need to use a Schema Registry if you plain on using Confluent's AvroConverter
