SQL Server 2012 is not necessary.

The configuration for PowerPivot in SharePoint 2010 is inside SharePoint Central Admin. (primarily PowerPivot Service, but also Excel Services, Secure Store).You'll have to have some understanding about SharePoint Administration. In particular, go to your SharePoint CA Site (under start-programs-SharePoint Tools), System Settings, Services On Server. Then click powerpivot to get the farm config. thats the start. good luck.
