You don't need (and there is no way either) to integrate Mono
into VS. VS is emitting assemblies that should run unchanged
under Mono anyway.

Odds are you're speaking about "Mono Tools for VS"
http://mono-tools.com/ which may help you with the port.

Not really. Mono is primary[1] a runtime environment like MS.NET,
which means that it must be installed under Linux.

Again, if you're thinking of "Mono Tools for VS", the
tools won't generate native code either. A Mono runtime
is still required on the system.

[1]There are methods of deploying native code (mkbundle, bundling
the runtime manually, full-AOT), but these won't help you
porting your application at all. See them as a last step of
optimizing your deployment.
