1.  It is both, as we have precept binding us to be baptized (Acts 2:38) and precept binding the Bishops and priests to baptize (Matt. 28:19)...and teaching of the Roman Pontiffs from Ecumenical Councils which binds the Sacrament of Baptism as a necessity of means.

2.  St. Alphonsus was neither unorthodox nor an heretic, but neither was he inerrant nor infallible.  Besides that, I have yet to see any credible evidence that he has taught "baptism of desire."
