1)  Whatever is easiest.  The load from ~70 users is negligible.  Firing up
a new VM, installing Messenger and pointing it to existing eDir objects is
straightforward.  An in place upgrade also works.

2)  No port conflicts out of the box.  8300 is the default, but you can set
it to whatever.

3)  Messenger uses a single port for client access, so no additional ports
are necessary.

One thing worth mentioning is that all Messenger mobile clients require
that the MA is configured for SSL.  If you're using a self-signed
certificate, users will be prompted with a warning to that effect.  In
addition, please read over the section on Push Notification in the doc (if
you've got iOS users).
