Doesn't Microsoft Excel do the same without any add-ins?

Excel doesn't have a built-in way to add a table of contents to a workbook. The task can be solved with a VBA macro or you can use the Insert Hyperlink command to get your table of contents. In this case, you'll have to create links to each sheet manually. Obviously, the more sheets you have, the more time-consuming this option is.

Is there a limit to the number of sheets to create a table of contents?

There is no limitation to the number of sheets in a workbook.

Can I create a table of contents if I have only one sheet?

No, the add-in works only if you have two or more sheets in a workbook :-)

Can I create an Excel table of contents on each sheet?

Yes, you can insert a table of contents as many times and to as many places as needed.

Does the table of contents include a hyperlink to the sheet where it is inserted?

No, for your convenience the add-in does not create a hyperlink to the sheet where the table of contents is placed.
