yes , you need to have service archive for each service that your are going 
to publish

then you have to have two aars

yes , you can write operations in a service which take OM (XML) as argument 
, and the interesting is that for each operation in the service you can 
define messageRecivres (message receiver is the on which is the end of a 
flow and it has full access to incoming SOAP message) and message receiver 
is the one how talk to service implementation class , so you can write your 
message receiver the way you want to handle incoming SOAP message.
