A google search for NXT Arduino shows a few hits - 311000+ to be precise.

There is no place to plug a serial cable into a NXT, so I don't know what you mean.
All the NXT stuff is controlled from the controller by I2C so if you want to control all the motors and sensors you can use the arduino's I2C bus, but you have to knock it down to 3V3.

I'm not too sure if you found an answer, but this looks like this might be a good solution:

Get a serial to BlueTooth adapter, and then send commands to the NXT using that.  For the NXT commands you wish to send, there is a great tutorial here:

Hope this helps,
