If it's new, it'll speak automatically. If not, press command f5 as Eleanor
says. Note that you may also need to press the FN key in conjunction with this
command as function keys can be set to perform hardware functions by default.
Yes just connect your iPhone via USB.
As for copying your iTunes library, I'll have to send you a link later on
unless someone beats me to it as I'm on a train with access to a touchscreen,
and doing that sort of stuff is just a bit too annoying without a keyboard. You
could probably also sweet talk an Apple Store into doing it for you.

Yes, Voiceover comes as standard and it'll talk right out of the box.
The Macbook Air and Macbook Pro both have USB. The Macbook might too though
I'm not sure.
You can also copy your iTunes library using an external drive, though if you
want to save to it from the Mac, you may need to reformat it.

You could use iTunes Natch. This would give access to your iTunes library on
all your devices. You would have to pay, but I think it's worth it.
