HP Envy 100 / 114 Printers
1) Is it possible to hook up one of the above-mentioned printers to one's wireless router network,
via inputting the network name and password on the printer's front panel,
instead of using an installation CD on a PC?
2) Is it possible to define one of the above-mentioned printers to one's Google Cloud, as a Google Cloud Printer,
via signing in to Google and inputting the information on the printer's front panel?
I have a HP110, when I installed it I downloaded and installed just the driver.
Do a custom install and read each step so you can opt out of toolbars and other crap.
Works well on my Win 7 and Vista machines, hangs up on shut down on XP sometimes.
For info on use with Google Cloud see here:

I will defer to others who will be more knowledgeable about setting up cloud printing.
1.) you still need a driver on your computer. As gwalk said, if what you are wanting to do is avoid installing all the other software then your software cd should give the option of just installing the driver and not installing all the other software that comes on the cd.
2. If it is a 110-e or 114-e all in one d411 then it should be cloud ready. Look for some discussion in the manual about eprint. In that case you should be able to set it up without needing it connected to a pc. I'm not familiar with all the hp models so there could very well be envy 100 models that are not eprint cloud ready and they would have to be connected to a computer.
