Check out all the resources pointed out above, as they'll answer most of your questions.

PIN messaging is blackberry to blackberry messaging only, the message travels only through RIM's servers, not any third party servers. Its very fast, never any delay in time. Blackberry Messenger is a chat program that relies on PIN messaging servers, and allows "real time chatting" much like AIM, but again, its for bb users only.

Yes, you can find many third party apps out there for AIM. Check the Third Party software thread, as all are listed in there.

You can currently only use the two themes that came pre-loaded on your device. DO NOT attempt to download or run other themes, as they are not compatible with the 7100i. Nextel/RIM have claimed to be working on themes for the 7100 though....

There's plenty of cases out there too. Check the harware/accessories forum, as they'll be in there--you may have to check different links of companies that make cases, I know Fortte ( makes some cases for the 7100i (although they're not available yet)....
