Have you tried googling?

Windows programs can not run directly under linux. There is a API called wine that will allow some window apps to run and it appears that itunes does.
There are some native ipod applications like gtkpod that can do the basic functions of syncing etc but is not a full replacement.

With an update and secure system running an antivirus is not as critical as windows but it depends on how you use the computer. Check out clamv, f-prot,avg and rootkit hunter.

There are MSN equiv like amsn and pidgin. I do not use either so I can not be of any real help in this area.
