I think you've missed the point.  ejabberd federates with GTalk OK.  You don't have to do anything to start a connection the server will manage it all.  Just setup ejabberd with your own domain, create yourself an account and then you will be able to chat to your friends on GTalk.  

You can't use your GTalk JID (address) directly, you'll need an XMPP proxy like the one ProcessOne have (http://www.process-one.net/en/imstore/).  You put your GTalk details into that proxy and then you get your GTalk buddies in your ejabberd roster.

No - See above
