Welcome to the forums, Willster.

Apple has chosen not to support Linux. iTunes is only available for Windows and Mac.

There are many fine music applications that run natively in Linux, such as Rhythmbox and Amarok. If you do a Google search for "best linux audio players" you'll find some good suggestions.

If you are using the Gnome version of Fedora, you already have Rhythmbox installed. Go to your Applications menu and give it a try, see if you like it!

You can learn more about Rhythmbox at their website: http://projects.gnome.org/rhythmbox/

No idea, sorry. Have you looked for answers on the Frostwire website?

Frostwire may not be available for Fedora. Fedora has a lack of available software. I think Banshee is the best linux alternative to itunes as of right now, you should look it up.

There's no reason to repeat your question.

You can use:
amarok or gtkpod.


edit: use the application manager for Fedora (yum/yumex)
You might also want to install multimedia codecs first.

Rhythmbox picks up your iPod by default and allows you to not only "sync", but to just drag and drop to/from the iPod like a regular thumb drive. I would assume Amarok does the same thing but I haven't used it in years.

Ubuntu and Fedora both come with Rhythmbox installed, so there. Rhythmbox can sync with iPods easily. And if you want to sync an iPod Touch, try installing the ipheth library (I know it's available on Ubuntu, but I wonder about Fedora).
