Sure. Connect up Rx, Tx, Gnd, and provide a 3.3V source, I think the Uno regulator may be good for enough current.

Probably. I've read they XBees won't work without some setup, even tho Digi may say otherwise.

yes i'd reckon it's similar to the ethernet shield, involving setting your MAC address and the like in your sketch.
