    1) Yes... The Impex developer has already stated in these posts that phpbb 3 is supported. The only thing is that your users might have to reset their passwords.

    2) The latest. I don't think they have a refund policy for that, but don't worry, won't fail.

    3) Depends on the mod. Nowadays, most hacks at are installed automatically (just upload some files and importing a XML file). Other require some template edit. A few ones require a lot of edits.

    4) Depends on the mod; if you develop a mod, you're free to chose to distribute it for free or for a cost. Most of them are free, only a few big ones are commercial.

    5) Same as above. You'll probably find a good number of freely available template sets. Some boards prefer to hire someone to code them a brand new template.

    6) I guess, depends on personal preferences. I can tell you I went from phpbb2.x to vb like 6 months ago and I haven't heard a single complaint yet. And I'm much happier, myself
