I believe the mono runtime and compiler is GPL, while all of the mono class libraries are LGPL.

However, they are also open to licensing commercially to a 3rd party if desired - as stated in their FAQ. I assume they do this by asking all code contributors to agree to give the copyright over to Novell at the time that the contribution is submitted.

As for your interoperability questions - I'm sorry I'm unable to help.
