I wanted to make changes in /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf which is absent
There is really no difference between the two. If you're launching httpd it will read /usr/local/apache2/conf/httpd.conf in your setup.
A much simpler way to install would have been "yum install httpd". That way you don't have to do a manual update when patches are released ...
If you're really worried about having an httpd.conf in /etc/httpd/conf, why not create a symlink?
ln -s /usr/local/apache2/conf/httpd.conf /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf
