No FR distro comes with something like that. OTOH it's all regular
GNU/Linux systems so you can setup it any way you like.

Both are possible. USB keyboard is an easier solution.

Nope, hardware limitation of an ancient GSM chip :(

Same as with any ARM board. Most of the stuff can be compiled natively
on FR itself (and distcc can help with compile speed
issues). Something machine-specific should be altered of course.

Hardware acceleration in a proper way is not implemented (probably
yet, the work to get all the needed pieces like KMS/DRI2/Gallium3D...)
and never was. The hacked version of mplayer worked for some people
for some time, probably you can reproduce that state using some
particular mplayer and X driver versions.
