And as for the other questions, that's really all subjective. DX10 will be able to produce some advance effects that the Xbox 360 isn't capable of since its hardware is DX9 IIRC.
Yes, I think the 360 has a unique API that is roughly DX9-based yet has certain DX10 functions but is not DX10 compliant. I think at best it will be able to emulate some DX10 features seen on later Vista games. As to whether DX10-only PC games will be able to run on the 360, only time will tell. People said HD was impossible on PS2, yet we got GT4 1080i.

Bring on 8800GTX!!
