a) Any bot that there is full source for can be made to work.  I 
recently compiled AceBot for example.  If you have any trouble building 
one, send mail to me or the list..

b) I don't think that using icculus q2 as your server would change 
anything for your clients (except that we patched a few cheats) the 
resolution, etc comes from the client side rather than the server side.
