Im just about to start a project using adobe AIR/flex for the blackberry playbook, I have a few questions:

1. Some QNX classes do not work on the desktop. This includes things like TextInput, QNXApplication, Device, Dialog, etc. They are dependent on a service that only runs on the OS.
2. It all depends. You can do a full Mobile app in AIR/Flex and it will run on the simulator. There are some pros and cons to this approach, but in general it will work OK.
3. AIR/Flex has several classes that can call remote backend systems via a normal HTTP/S, REST, WebServices, RemoteObjects, etc. It does not know or care that the backend is done in Java.
Hope that helps.

Just for extending jtegen comment, as for item #3 you could use BlazeDS - AMF protocol for enhanced Java - AIR communication
