#1. No biggie. Apparently its trying to listen for connections using ipv6. You probably don't have it installed or configured to use, don't worry about it, if X starts, then well, it works. X always has some funky errors in the background even when it does work.

#2 Well, what kind of sound do you have? Does your sound actually work? More details get better answers.

one of the applications you are using is trying to play sound over esd (ESound makes me think this)
try figuring out which application this is, and configure it to NOT use esd (let it use ALSA(or ARTS if you use KDE)).
killall -9 esd (as root)

good luck

alsa howto's for your soundcard can be found on
