On Windows, the Display Driver includes CUDA.  Do not install CUDA on Windows, as it can mess things up.On a Mac, you do have to install CUDA separately.

If you have your GPU video drivers loaded, and in your PrPro preferences, you can select "Mercury Acceleration: CUDA", then you're fine.

Not all rendering features use GPU acceleration even with MPE GPU acceleration enabled. Many of the rendering features use only the CPU.

However, if your project is laden with GPU-accelerated effects, and your system's GPU is still underutilized, then you might have a CPU that's underpowered relative to the GPU (say, the system might have an i5 or even an i3 CPU but mated to an overkill GPU such as a GTX 1080 Ti). Remember, no higher-end GPU can compensate for a weakling CPU!

Randall's answer was spot on. There's a list of GPU accelerated effects ...

List of GPU accelerated effects: https://helpx.adobe.com/premiere-pro/using/effects.html

But as Randall notes, even if you're using a GPU-accelerated effect, if your CPU isn't a match for your GPU, it limits the GPU.

"Balanced" machines are needed, really ... which is why doing a bit of looking through threads over on the Hardware forum, and/or going to Bill Gehrke's PPBM8 page for data on current hardware and how it's working in PrPro are worth doing.

No. All rendering in Premiere Elements 12 is through the CPU only. In fact, even the latest version of Premiere Elements renders almost entirely through the CPU.

And for that matter, games do not fully utilize a modern CPU. Unlike Premiere which hammers the CPU.
