As far as I know it uses the ejabberd codebase.

You don't. This server is used only to host the chatrooms. You need to
create an account on one of the public XMPP services to get on the
network, then join the chatrooms at jabber.ietf.org from your "home"
account. It's relatively easy to create an IM account at one of the
public services such as jabber.org (of which I am an admin), Google
Talk, Live Journal Talk, etc.

No, because it hosts only the chatrooms.

As long as your client supports RFC 3920/1 and XEP-0045 you will be able
to get on the network and join the chatrooms.
