Do we need to build Oracle 11g Forms based on template.fmb as for all other versions? Can we not directly deploy the forms created without template fmb?

Template form is not needed, you can create and deploy form without template.fmb. Template,fmb is usefull, because it contains some basics which are used in all forms. So when creating new form these basics are there.
In forms there are also libraries - pll and olb. Plls are attached to the form and objects from olbs can be subclassed or copied to the form. These libraries contains procedures, objects ... which are also common for application.
You can add plls and objects from olb to your template.fmb or to your form which is not created from template.fmb.

I agree with Henka, you don't have to use the template form.  I've only done limited testing with Forms11, by upgrading an older system to Forms11, but that worked fine with no template form.

If you will be building new forms, it may be helpful to start with the template.
