You'd want CABSetup if you needed your install to span on multiple physical media. If you'll be distributing over the wire there are better choices, with better compression. For what I suggested, yes, you need WinRAR to prepare the data. On the target system you only need to extract UnRAR.exe (~300 KB). You can also use 7zip, and there are NSIS plugins for that. I only suggested RAR5 because in your case it could potentially save more space.
P.S. In the code I posted you also need AddSize, so installer knows how much space is required.
