Look here for group-based authorization via LDAP.

I'm not exactly sure what you're trying to accomplish here, or what
the concern is about accessing your application in the way you
described (after all, we are talking about a web application), but you
might have a look at mod_rewrite.

This is an application programming concern, not an Apache one--if you
want to auth users via a web page, you'll need to create a web page to
provide that functionality.

I'm not at all familiar with building Apache, I use what my distro
provides. Perhaps someone else can chime in on this one...
