Wow, yes, your talents and help would be very much appreciated!  What I'd
suggest is waiting a few weeks untill the new server is up and running,
then watching for announcements reguarding a "documentation team", then
you can join the team and there will hopefully be a few docs to help
everyone get started.

Not yet, but there is a few clones out there and a nice library for
writing this stuff, so it shouldn't be too difficult if someone wanted to
attack this.

That is primarily a client issue, it's up to any of the Jabber client
authors out there.  I'm sure that once Jabber starts to become more
popular that clients will be written that are themable.
