What do you mean by exe? Do you mean a .exe file? This is a windows executable file. When you install an rpm, generally the program is installed somewhere like /usr/bin/ which is already in your path. Try just typing the name of the program into the command line. What rpm did you install?

Yes, by using the icon the RPM creates in your Gnome or KDE menu. Or perhaps you had some more esoteric method in mind?

most things will also install in icon in your menu (the 'start menu') check there to see if a launcher has been created. You can also create your own on your desktop by right clicking. In the command line put the name of the command you would run from the command line. What executable are you trying to run? If I know, I could tell you more.

If the rpm installs an icon for the program, then you can click it. It's all up to the person who packaged the program as a RPM. There's no universal method that would work with all RPMs.

You can use 'erotic' methods if that turns you on :p but apart from using a Terminal or clicking on an icon you're not left with much choice :D

If the package maintainer put code into the RPM to launch it after installation then it would happen, otherwise you're stuck with the only two options available. The Gnome devs took it upon themselves to remove the 'Run' (like windows) entry from the Gnome menu.

Silly me, I forgot! If you have the Deskbar applet in your Panel, then just type the name of the application you want to run there!

One crude way is to create an icon on your desktop and replace the command with your executable name. That is if your executable is in the /usr/bin directory else replace the command-line with the full path.

If you don't know how to create an icon, you can copy the icon of any other program and do what is mentioned above. It should work.
