First of all erlang is more than just an "interpreted" language. It's more
like java in that it compiles to bytecode. So if java fits in you idea of
"interpreted" languages then maybe erlang would too. But java is pretty fast
these days and I doubt you are gonna find much problem with erlang in that
respect. Plus it's easy to do distributed in erlang, as opposed to java or
C, and that has some definite speed gains also.

That is a subject far larger than an email can really cover. take a look at
the wiki page of views for the background:
http://wiki.apache.org/couchdb/HTTP_view_API

Additionally the how to guides cover some other common questions:
http://wiki.apache.org/couchdb/How-To_Guides

Like for instance hierarchical data in views.

and finally some examples in the view snippets section:
