About video call over xmpp, the feature is being worked on but I can't promise it'll be released in next update. Maybe 3rd party apps like peregrine allow that?
No, last time I checked Peregrine didn't enable video calling.

What do you mean by program manager? Doesn't telepathy-gabble support any XMPP server account already? For example if you have account, you can do something like this in the terminal on N9 (under root):

mc-tool add gabble/jabber jabberorg string:password=mypassword
mc-tool list
mc-tool enable gabble/jabber/myuser_40jabber_2eorg0
It will work, to see your contacts, but you can't send messages / initiate voice calls in the current default client (there is no UI for it simply, and UI is visible only if Google Talk server is used). I think all you need to do is to enable that already existing UI for any XMPP server instead. So there won't be a need to add new type of account UI even (XMPP), but there still be a way to use it with manual setup.
