XF 1.1 Two questions: Lost-password link and new user email

#1
1. I came across this link on these forums,
http://xenforo.com/community/lost-password/

Does this 'page' exist in a standard xenforo installation?

2. Normally a user gets an email advising them of their username and password after their registration is approved. However, my forum is private so everyone gets registered manually. Is there a way to have xenforo send out that same email after I have set up their account?

1) Yes that page is available to guests (those who have not logged in).

2) Not directly, no. An addon is required.

That reset process actually sends a confirmation email first. When the user clicks the link in the confirmation email then it generates a new password and sends it to them. An addon is required to email a user their password directly upon account creation. You can post a request:
