Except for requirement #4, yes (out of curiosity: Why is that so
important to you?).

Are any of the other things not working for you?

> 2. What ejabberd configuration should I use.

A configuration such as this one should work:

      local: allow
    # [...]

      access_createnode: pubsub_createnode
      ignore_pep_from_offline: false
      last_item_cache: true
        - "flat"
        - "hometree"
        - "pep" # Requires mod_caps.
    # [...]
