Apploader is installed on your PC when you install an OS on the computer.
It is found in C/Program Files/Commom Files/RIM/Apploader/Loader.exe
As to which OS, .861 only dropped yesterday so there is little feedback on it as yet.
The safe option os to go for .825 which is stickied in this forum.
Download, install. delete the vendor.xml files (there is a guide as to how to do this early in the .825 thread provided by Elite 1)
Backup using DM load the OS by running Loader .exe restore your data and apps and away you go.
For the first couple of days do 2 or 3 battery pulls 6 hours apart to help the new OS settle.

A Hybrid builder just fine tunes a "stock" OS to get better performance by changing various .cod files for those from different builds.
It is a fine art and the BL Team have got it nailed.
However, if you are not familiar with installing OS's it may be wise for you to stick with a "stock" install until you are confident in what you are doing.
If you do decide to go the Hybrid route then please post any questions in the BL Thread in the Hybrid forum which is monitored by the guys who build the OS's as well as many very experienced BB users who will be glad to help you out.

To install a BL Hybrid you first need to download and install a "stock" base OS on your PC.
Then download the Hybrid from the link in the thread. Current version is RC11 but RC12 is due to drop anytime now.
Unzip the Hybrid download, copy the Java files from the unzipped file and paste (overwrite) into the Java folder of the base OS.
Once you have prepared the Hybrid OS you can proceed to instaoll it on the phone in the same way you would a "stock" OS.
You may also want to consider "shrinking" the OS prior to install to remove features, languages and fonts that you do not use to free up memory. BBH Tools is the way to go to shrink.
