I would guess Class 2 (20-40mw) that's common for PDAs and mobile phones

Yes, the hardware needs to support SCO connections in order to support 
audio (e.g. headset and handsfree)

Profiles I know about...

WORK very well:
  obex push/ftp
  HID (human interface device)
  BNEP (bluetooth ehternet encapsulation)
  DUN (dial up networking)
  bluetooth serial port

  bluetooth headset support, works but still is under development 
(please correct
me if I'm wrong)
  Syncml (e.g. with opensync)

Should work (never tried myself):
  bluetooth printing (e.g. with CUPS)

... did I forget anything?

blueZ, the Linux bluetooth stack is totally capable of doing this.
