No doubt !

Not really that i know of. it's fairly easy to setup a simple installer
(copying files,  set some variables, create shortcuts...). The only thing i
would say to be tricky is custom actions, custom panels or maybe
But in any case, that's why the list is here for.
No matter how silly the question might seem to you, do NOT hesitate to ask
I'm sure whatever it is.... we've seen worse :-)

IzPack is licenced under the terms of the Apache 2.0.
The tutorial is a bit out of date.
Sorry for the inconvenience.
