L4D1 had an exec for a 360 controller. I imagine L4D2 has one, too. I think it was "exec 360controller" but I could be wrong, and probably am.

You'll be better off using a mouse and keyboard. I know you're going to say stuff like "I'm used to the controller" or "I'm not good with a mouse" or some other crap like that, but trust me - if you keep using a mouse/keyboard and just get better at it, you'll do much better than with a controller. I know you'll say "but people can still be good on a controller" and that may be true, but if that person had invested as much time on a keyboard as he has with a controller, he'd be even better.

Take the time to re-learn some controls. You'll be better off in the long run, and plus you won't have to go buy a PC 360 controller (assuming you don't have one).

You can be the best controller using player in the world, but compared to even an average Keyboard / Mouse user, you'll still look like garbage.
Rule 1. I am always right.
Rule 2. If in any case I appear wrong, refer to rule 1.

Yes you can use a 360 gamepad for it.

Something annoying that keyboard users do is run forwards and backwards over and over when a horde comes and run in front of my bullets.

I'm sure there's an option for a gamepad in the settings menu, but gamepad's are not the best for FPS type game's.... driving games and flying game's a gamepad is most likely your best bet, but FPS's are much easier with KB+M.

Yes this game supports the 360 controller, and as for K+M I say you paid for the game play it how you want to, I can't stand k+m play myself as it's far too frantic in speed and I lack the coordination to handle keyboard and mouse in a hectic combat environment.

It's a personal issue with me but one that I can and frequently do work around via controller play, and I seem to be doing just fine, enjoy the game however you need to.

Yeah, just plug it in, start up the game, go to options and enable the gamepad. The controls are automatically set, but you can modify them if you want.

Using a controller is perfectly fine for coop....maybe even versus since your opponents aren't shooting back at you per se.
