I have Openstack running. How and where do I just install Tacker? Do I need a separate instance of linux to install Tacker and then configure it to connect to the Openstack host?

Tacket has an installation guide. You want to add it to an existing cloud, so manual installation seems to be the way to go.

In theory, install it anywhere; in practice, an OpenStack controller has the required infrastructure already.

Tacker is MANO service, it will connect to the VIMs registered on it and call the endpoints to create resources on it like instances, alarms, etc. Being this said.

Tacker could be installed standalone outside OpenStack and register any VIM (OpenStack and k8s supported at this moment).

Just need to follow the following steps in Could be in the same nodes as your controllers or separate nodes, only need access to the APIs and databases.

If want to try standalone or complete OpenStack deployment with tacker, in kolla-ansible we have support to tacker and all other required services.
