Does SSIS need to be installed on a server to run SSIS packages? Or is SSIS only needed on computers where SSIS packages are designed?

Okay, I am new to SSIS (I have 2008), but I will try to answer your question.

Assuming that you have SQL Server (SS) on the server, you can load a package onto SS and run it from there. You could face security issues and things like that (To be able to handle them, you will need to know SS 2008 concepts like - Roles, Proxies, Credentials, SQL Server Agent)

This will give you a quick overview of how you can make SS execute an SSIS package as a job. This job may not run, but at least you will get an idea.

In SS, go to SQL Server Agent > jobs > new job :
General >> name = myjobs
Steps >> new > step name = mystep, type = ssis package, run as = SS Agent account > General tab package source = file system, package = put your path.

So I don't need to rerun setup and add SSIS to the server, correct? I just need to make sure the SQLAgent account has permissions for everything the package (designed on a workstation) does.

SSIS is a windows based service that gets installed if you select it as a component during the initial SQL Server installation. It is different than the BIDS GUI that you use to build or design packages and which lets you execute the packages.

To be short: you need to install SSIS on the server where you want to run the packages. This isn't necessarily the machine where they are designed of course, but also not the machine where they are stored.

You need the necessary binaries for SSIS, but you don't need the service that is co-installed though. You can disable the service.
I wrote a blog post about it: When is DTEXEC installed?.

I understand that the SSIS service is needed to run SSIS packages. Is the SSIS service (not the GUI tool BIDS) installed automatically when one installs SQL server ? If not, how can one install it ?

Read Koen's blog in its entirety and that will answer your questions. SSIS needs to be installed (the binaries) in order to run SSIS packages. The service that gets installed is not required to run packages and can be disabled if all you are interested in is running packages. SSIS is installed as an option from the SQL Server setup, either as an additional feature to the database engine or as a separate feature on its own.

The service is only used when you log into SSIS with Management Studio. It lists the stored packages and can give an overview of which packages are running.

By "install SSIS" I mean the Integration Services checkbox in Setup.

So it sounds like it doesn't need to be on installed on the Database Engine server if a package is being run from a client machine that has SSIS installed and is connecting to the server.

What if you want to schedule a data import package in SQLAgent. Do you need to run Setup on the server with the Integration Services box checked in that case?
