EjbJar ejbJar = EjbJar.Factory.newInstance();
AssemblyDescriptorType assemblyDescriptor =

Once you've made a bean you can use getters/setters. I like the helper 
methods to add new content to an existing bean.

Am not sure if the Factory thing is required to instantiate new beans - 
I hope there can be a default constructor on the bean implementations 
so that they really are normal beans.  Though the nice thing about the 
Factory approach is you can just use the generated interfaces in your 
code & not refer to the implementation classes directly.

Absolutely - this is the point of XMLBeans :)

Not that I'm aware of.
