Lets say that I find an acapella to a song. If I put a beat in the background and label it as a remix is it legal to put out on an album (like for free download or through iTunes).

Don't you mean "re-arrange"? "Remixing" means you're changing the mix/balance/fade of the different audio tracks of a particular song recording...not "re-arranging" it.

I will never understand how music culture has "re-defined" the term "remix" into meaning a "different arrangement".

I believe as long as you don't sell it you will be fine.

You would probably need to get the permission of the Artist and/or the company that distributes the original. If there's a profit to be made, I'm sure they would like to get their greedy hands on it.
