The short answer to your questions is: look in squid.conf.

1. The caching instance is set up as ususal.
2. The non-caching (filtering) instance is set up as follows:
cache_host localhost parent 3128 3130 proxy-only
visible_hostname filter-proxy.your.domain

There are two ways to get them to run on the same host. Either use
different port numbers (configured by http_port and icp_port), or setup
virtual IP-interfaces and run the two Squid processes on different IP
addresses (configured by tcp/udp_incoming_address. Don't set
