You can get away with shooting without a panohead outdoors with very careful technique. That being said, a panohead makes stitching easier and is a must for interiors. And a fisheye isn't mandatory, but allows you to take a 360 in anywhere between 2-8 shots. A rectilinear lens can do a 360 with more resolution, but it requires more shots.
And you can use Hugin instead of PTGui or AutoPano, but it's slower and not as easy to use.
I've been shooting 360s for 6 years now, and I'm always happy to help fellow pano enthusiasts.
