The /usr/local/sbin/monit in the mentioned example is not directory - it's example of the path to monit binary. If you installed monit via the rpm mentioned in your previous emails, your monit binary is probably in different location (/usr/bin/monit ?) so you should modify the configuration accordingly.
Regarding the recommended method - i think you should go with the simplest … even the init script which was installed with the rpm should work for you out of the box.
