Answer

You can use your IP address in place of Name servers. Nameservers are hosted service, if you know than you can install a DNS server in your computer. IIS or Apache server doesn’t have anything to do with DNS.

It is not required that you have a static IP address to act your computer as a web-server. You can create web server even your IP address is not static but dynamic. You can use ddclient services which will update the DDNS server when your IP is dynamic IP address.
