There is a serial debug port - see Chapter 2 of the Tutorials. After the board is configured with, say, Ubuntu, you can enable SSH and connect via WiFi or wired Ethernet.
5V 2A wall warts are often used for USB Hubs. They are also recommended for the Raspberry PI if WiFi and other attachments are used.
In any event, they are all over the place. The last one I bought came from Amazon.

You can use any toolchain you wish. All you need to do is create an executable .bin file that can be dropped onto the board. The board connects to your PC as both a serial device and a mass storage controller so drag-and-drop works well.
It is even possible to grab the mbed libraries and use them with another toolchain.
I did one small project for the mbed using Rowley Crossworks for the toolchain.
No public wish lists :(
