package users and Perl

I eventually need to install some Perl programs (and modules).
I've used, since the beginning and up to now, the package users system.
I've got a user (perl) that is the owner of the Perl package.
As I understand, to install a module, or even a program written in Perl,
the common practise is to run
My question is:
- what are the commands commonly used in the install phase?
- where are the new files going?
- do I need to be able to modify/overwrite files in the lib/perl
directory structure, or only to add new files?
In few words: can I use a distinct package user for each
_AND_ what about CPAN? Can I use "perl -MCPAN -instal..."
with package users?
TIA for any advice.
