Can't answer all your questions. But as for the Yahoo ports info:

Ports Yahoo! Messenger uses!

Yahoo! Messenger services uses a variety of ports. Service Ports
Chat & Messenger TCP Port 5050: Client Access only
Insider/Room Lists TCP Port 80: Client Access only
File Transfer TCP Port 80: Server Access.
Your ISP may block this port, as its used for web hosting.
You can change port in Messenger, Preferences, File Transfer.
Voice Chat UDP 5000-5010
TCP 5000-5001: Client Access
If UDP Fails, TCP will be used instead, see below.
WebCam TCP Port 5100: Client Access
Super Webcam TCP Port 5100: Server Access
P2P Instant Messages TCP Port 5101: Server Access
PMs between Buddys may not use the Yahoo! Server, but this is not a requirement.
