Boiling not neccessary. It will only bind up the pectins. Great for making Jam but not so great if you want to brew with it. Just wash, puree. I wouldn't think that the wild yeast would be a problem. Spoilage not a problem if you put it in the secondary. Just sanitize your equipment prior to using said equipment.

And don't worry, it will turn out fine. Again recomending the fruit in the secondary fermentation. Less explosion, more flavor.
