PHPasap doesn't require composer to install any of it's core features. But it supports composer just in case you want to add any third party library using composer.

composer require swiftmailer/swiftmailer
One thing to note is that when you would be using any of the SwiftMailer classes in your Controller make sure you reference them by thier full name. So instead of
Swift_Message you would be using
\ at the beginning means this class is in global namespace.
