Not sure about the spreadsheet but you could use Etherpad for the document collaboration. Etherpad ... allows really real-time document collaboration for groups of users. Etherpad is open source; you can host your own Etherpad by downloading the source code or try Etherpad for free on one of the Public Sites. Hope this helps.

This is really non-obvious.

I think you would have to setup a custom solution for this, involving a script that periodically pulls the latest version from gdocs and puts it in your dropbox folder and vice versa.

One of the largest differences is that you get much better compatibility with Microsoft Office when you are using Office Web Apps instead of Google Docs. Google Docs can butcher a good bit of your formatting when importing and there isn't a good way to get it back if you need to export. That said, I think Google Docs has much better real time collaboration ...
