A few different ways this can be done as described in the document with Discovery & Inventory rules of the beacons and adoption. This with any remote connection and/or software deployment can have it's assumptions like networking connectivity, permissions, etc. 

If you are using a software deployment solution (GPO, SCCM, PDQ Deploy, etc.) each of the types of packages have their set of instructions to follow and what files or binaries are required. As an example, for Windows you can download a "Bootstrap Template" with preconfigured options that the Windows MSI package can leverage during the installation. For an "installation package", having the MSI, INI (bootstrap) file and Data1.cab in the same directory you can script the installation for your environment.

Good morning, Yes, FlexNet Agents can be deployed using the Beacons. On Windows, the agent uses the 'System' account. Best regards Thorsten

Yes, you can find everything explained in the "Gathering FlexNet Inventory" guide published in Flexera Helpnet:

Hope this helps,
