Check out the JabberBeans project at www.jabber.org.  It will give you a 
huge head start on creating a Java Jabber client.  To answer your questions 

Go to java.sun.com and check out the Java XML extension.  Two types of 
parsers are available as part of the standard distribution.

If you're behind a proxy/firewall you'll need to add support for the 
firewall in your client.  This would be a proxy (SOCKS4/5) socket in your 
socket factory (see SocketFactory and SocketImpl).  I'm not aware of any 
readily available free Java SOCKS4/5 socket libraries out there (please 
tell me where to find one if you know of one).  So you'll either have to 
write your own (a big task) or buy one (or use a native library using JNI).
