what do you mean by "processing model". Those two are completely different

- mod_perl inserts perl interpreter to apache, allowing accessing apache
  internals, modify apache's behaviour

- mod_php interprets PHP files and sends them to client

If you want apache to parse perl scripts in the same way as mod_php does
with php scripts, you need to install an apache module that will do that.

Yes, the module can be written using mod_perl functionality.
