Yes, the owner of the project can add collaborators to the project in the
"admin" part of that project, as long as the collaborators have a github
account (free & easy to create).

No, people must "fork" the project using the github interface (and their
github account), push their changes, and when satisfied, send a pull
request from their repository to the "central" repository.

The "cental" repository's collaborators are then able to merge in the
history from the repository that issued the pull request, and the only
server needed is github, which hosts both repositories.
