As for installation methods, it really is consistence.You install from (or the other compatible archives) files.
These are the official tools, installpkg, removepkg, explodepkg, makepkg, and then slackpkg which is a wrapper around those tools much like apt-get is around dpkg.
Of course none of these tools resolves dependencies as that is what the administrator is for.
The official method to install a Slackbuild is to do so manual per the instructions on the site there is however a great tool called sbopkg which provides similar features to what slackpkg does only specifically for the slackbuilds repos.
Sbopkg is a fantastic tool that takes some of the intimidation out of the manual slackbuild process and was developed by Chess Griffin (of Linux Reality Podcast fame).
Slackpkg is a good package manager for slackware that help the user to keep updated its installation.
