Is Splunk Universal Forwarder able to run Powershell inputs?

In Inputs.conf, it says that we can run powershell scripts using the below stanza. Does the universal forwarder have the capability to run this input alone?

[powershell://]

Is a UF required to have a Powershell to be installed on Windows host separately to run this input? OR Does Powershell come as a package with UF Installation?

Yes it can.

Powershell is not packaged with UF, it must be installed to Windows.
