Is it possible to install conky-manager on Freya? Is is compatible with Pantheon Files?

If yes how can I start Conky when my computer boots?

Open your terminal, and add a new PPA to your repositories, then install it.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:teejee2008/ppa
sudo apt-get update 
sudo apt-get install conky-manager

To run conky at startup, you go to Applications -> System Settings -> Applications -> Startup -> Click the + icon at the bottom left corner, enter conky in the the bottom text input and hit enter.

I use conky with elementary OS 0.3 Freya with no issues.

    better: use add-apt-repository in first place to add a new PPA, that is hosted at launchpad
