No, you are not permitted to do that on Wordpress.com blogs. AdSense, Yahoo, Chitika, TextLinkAds, and other third-party advertising is not allowed here at WordPress.com.

Yes it is removed from the blog post as well. These videos are embedded in your blog so there is a direct link to anything that happens on the hosting site.

I accomplished that last month while building a hack. Here is a hack that would work the way you want, just ...

JavaScript is not allowed on wordpress.com blogs due to security reasons. This means that the following will not work (among others): <script> tags; javascript: links; and events such as onclick.

The Settings Menu is the place you are looking for. Everything you described can be turned off using the settings. As for the menus and pages, you can create pages right off the bat, and menu's can be created via Appearance->Menu. As to their placement - see widgets. A little bit of fiddling around with the system should be quite self explanatory.

As far as I know, there's also a Twitter-web app you can find via their site, that allows you to embed a user-specific timeline via html. It's not static, since it's basically just a miniature timeline window, but it sure looks genuine and non-photoshopped :) EDIT: Now I also found the Link :) (Scroll down on the Twitter main page and look for "goodies" ...

Yes, it seems all you have to do is paste your own CSS.

I would recommend Joomla or even Drupal. From my experience Joomla is easier to configure but Drupal is more powerful but harder to learn. They both have tons of free plugins / addons that can do what you need. Both also have tons of free templates / themes to make your site look the way you want. Wordpress would be great if you just want to post status ...

For self-hosted WordPress or WordPress.com? (The former is really off-topic for this site.)
