    As clearly stated on the download page you need any "Intel-based Mac running Mac OS X Leopard".

    I have no idea what you're talking about. 64 or 32-bit makes no difference.

    PPC Macs are not Intel Macs so are not officially supported in any way. There are not separate versions of OSX for 32 or 64 bit mode. I have heard of no issues running XCode/the iPhone SDK on a 64-bit Mac.

    Edit to add: that blog entry is from March last year. It's so old I'd just ignore it in every way: stick to the official read me files/advisories on the Apple site instead of trying to find problems that don't exist...

    What do you mean? iTunes is not used for developing. Have you read the documentation on the Apple site. It seems that pretty much all the questions you are asking could be answered very easily with some basic research on your part...

    I think iTunes is used if you want to send evaluation/test copies of your app to other people. I haven't tried this myself yet though.

    Well, all of your potential customers would be using iTunes to purchase your app!
