With Sling you "just" have to write request processing scripts (in the
language of your choice: jsp, server-side javascript, jruby, etc. or
java servlets) and store them in specific locations in the repository
to implement your application. Sling provides a RESTful HTTP interface
out of the box, and you can easily customize it - it's a web framework
built on top of a JCR repository.

With Jackrabbit only, you get the JCR API, but nothing in terms of
request handling, rendering etc. You'd have to write this or (more
likely) use the web framework of your choice.

Not at the moment, but so-called "selectors" (multiple extensions like
.mobile.small.html) in Sling make it easy to select alternate

HTH, and see you on the Sling lists if you have more specific
questions about it.
