Hello, is it necessary to install processor exceptions(with interrupt number 0-31) while installing IDT? Thanks.

Hello,

Technically no but recommended. Most of the exceptions indicate errors triggered by the current process and should be handled properly. (We emphasize most; other exceptions are used for debugging and system management, i.e. page faults.)
