You should notice in your apache configuration files that there is
SetEnv KOHA_CONF=...
SetEnv PERL5LIB=...
And they differ for the two instances. That is why your two instances work.

As for the cronjobs, I'll let someone else answer. I believe you can pass 
paths and such before calling the script. I just don't recall how off the 
top of my head.

And lastly, tcohen was most definitely correct in not mixing instructions 
between a packages installation (.deb) and a tarball installation. Where the 
files end up configured differ, though if you are familiar enough with the 
files, you should be able to figure out the mapping between the two in your 
head. This, however, is not advised.
