I think it has been done, but I haven't tried it myself. I'm not sure why it wouldn't work though. I know it work on other LTSP setups according to it's creator.

There was a separate DVD release, but it has gotten rather stale. The best way to install it is to follow the instructions on the wiki. 
As a rule, this is the place to check for answers first. If it's not included there, then ask on this list. That way we can add FAQs to the wiki!

Yes. Naturally, to run apps on the fat clients you need clients powerful enough to do this, but otherwise it should work fine.
You simply need to enable local apps, install the app in the thin client chroot, and then create a shortcut that uses the local app.
