Yes, wvdial is a configuration aid.  Underneath it depends on ppp, and
the ppp package already contains /usr/sbin/chat which can do the
necessary discussion with a "modem".  wvdial can be used to ease the
testing, then discarded in favour of just the ppp package.  Some modems
need to be told an APN, but some can store it from prior use.

Yes, you would need to cook another kernel.
