Is confluence required for automation alerts in Jira Service Desk Cloud

I'd like to set-up automation alerts for SLA's, etc. Does that require Confluence?

That user would get mentioned via an email notification if @ mentions are set up in the notification scheme.

Do you have any tutorial on that? Thank you!

Here is Atlassians documentation on Notification Schemes. Hopefully that helps!
