TN panels are cheap but actually have some of the worst color reproductions. I prefer IPS monitors myself, they tend to have slightly slower response times (5ms or so) but from what I have seen, they have the best color accuracy. IPS is more expensive as well.

5ms response time should be plenty in all of those situations. Most tv's have slower response times than that. Also the frequency in Hz (hertz determines how many frames per second the monitor can render. 60Hz = 60 frames per second maximum. Being that there are 1000miliseconds in a second a 5ms GTG response time would mean the pixels can change color 3 times faster than 1 frame on the 60Hz screen can be rendered.
What this means is that a monitor with 5ms response time would keep up even running at 200Hz, the only time you would run into any problems with ghosting in theory is if you had a monitor that was running over 200Hz or 200 frames per second. Most monitors are not this fast. Generally they are 60-120Hz.
You should be fine with any monitor that has 60Hz or higher and less than 8ms GTG response time. I prefer the IPS panel over all others I have owned so far.
You could actually get away with using a 60Hz monitor with 16ms response time or 120Hz monitor with 8ms response time. You won't be able to tell the difference between 5ms and 2ms. I doubt anyone would notice from 10ms to 5ms response time.

Either would be fine, one uses more power than the other. Xbox 360's only run around 30fps in most games, so any monitor will be fast enough. I would read reviews on amazon or another website to get a good idea about reliability etc.

TV's have different panel types just like monitors. I do not know which panel type is the most common, due to cost I would guess the TN panels are used the most.

You can do a search on youtube for TN vs IPS. I can not tell you which is better, it depends on the cost of the panel (quality) and then IPS generally have better colors which for me is more important than having a 2ms response time. I am sure there are some nice TN panels out there as well. You really have to look at them side by side to see the difference.

Any decent modern monitor will not lag with any xbox 360 game.

You would not notice any difference at all. With 5ms GTG, the limiting factor with any 60hz monitor is 60hz, which is 60fps. Xbox's typically run at 30fps so that monitor would be capable of double the frame rate the xbox can render out.
