Mplayer and xine should understand and be able to play unprotected AAC  
files.  A more complete list is available here:

Not aside from iTunes itself, no.  If you are interested in seeing a  
Linux or BSD version of iTunes, consider filing an enhancement request

Aside from doing the import on Windows?  Unix versions of T'bird have  
no knowledge of Microsoft's PST files, but I suppose you could upload  
your Outlook email to an IMAP server and then download those messages
