i'm wondering, how does forge works exactly ?

i don't really see that explained anywhere, so, how is fml launched ?

what does the installer does to the game folder ?

Forge is based on patches to the base game. The installer contains these in binary form (patches to the compiled class files). The installer then creates a patched version of the game jar in the versions folder as well as a launcher configuration JSON file. This file tells the launcher which libraries to add and which main class to launch. This main class is one of FMLs classes, which will then load Forge, mods as well as start the main game.
