Yes, you should use either Toaster (a home-brewn lightweight
protocol) or Fairy (SOAP server) to run the EnMasse server, and write
your client's code appropriately. Documentation and examples explain

You should use absolute URLs and expose the images for access via HTTP.

Yes, please refer to documentation and examples.

EnMasse is designed to run multiple instances of XEP over a grid of
many computers. Get a few to run to benefit from the distributed
processing and load balancing EnMasse provides.
