1. Up to you, you can use any .NET IDE if you're on Windows (Visual Studio,
SharpDevelop), otherwise, MonoDevelop is there for Windows, Linux and Mac.
2. Indeed. Well, just create your .NET app, then test it with Mono. I
believe there is an addon to run an app with Mono from VS (not free though,
I think), otherwise you can simply install Mono for Windows and run your app
through a command line. And test on other OSes too, as results can vary.
3. The only real way to know is by testing it. But you can check out the
class status page to see what's implemented: http://go-mono.com/status/ or
the more general http://mono-project.com/Compatibility page.
4. It's .NET code, really, so you should be able to use most .NET code that
doesn't call native code (otherwise it's a bug or unimplemented feature).
You can use MSDN as a reference.
