Yes, you are true: audio and video do not need anything special in the 
XMPP server; it is transfered over P2P. I think Coccinella is a nice 
client that supports VoIP using IAX, and in which you can transfer 
Quicktime media (also videos) using the whiteboard. I'm not aware of a 
client that supports video conferencing though.

Google Talk will work out-of-the-box, as Google Talk is running an XMPP 
server like ejabberd for their service. You do not need to configure 
anything! Just look at your firewall and DNS in case you encounter trouble.

No idea, I didn't tested it, but I like to know what it actually does :-)
