I cannot answer all your questions, but to get a binary that can run on 
the 770, it needs to be compiled for the ARM. People use Scratchbox for 
this, although it could probably be cross compiled, too. An i386 binary 
will not run on the 770. But you could debug it on the i386, and then 
compile for the ARM.

I haven't done any development for the 770, so I cannot go into much 
detail on how to actually port apps to it.
