To answer the sixth question: that's the plan. And while using emulators is great for testing and developing, it's not a substitute for the real thing.
In fact, I have a Core 2 Duo, a Pentium 820D, a Pentium-M, a dual PIII, an Athlon XP, a PIII, and a standard P4 (with "hyper threading") to test Haiku with. Despite current AMD hardware, it's a pretty extensive test park for a single room.

Needless to say, Haiku runs on all of these machines more or less fine, also with SMP enabled. When getting closer to the first release, we'll try to make sure it will run on as many hardware as possible.
