    jsp is technically a servlet, and is compiled at runtime by the server into a servlet. Its advantage is that for text output you aren't required to println everything. Both can be used to accomplish a task, but servlets can give you more flexibility in the sense of classic java features (inheritance, format, etc..). To run locally, just install JBoss, Tomcat, etc...

    Indeed you can use JBoss, Tomcat, or Glassfish and I'm sure there are others. I have used both Tomcat and Glassfish both of which are ok, Tomcat I would say provides a faster environment. Glasshfish seems a bit slughish.
