    In a ASP.NET Web Site, you can add mobile page by choosing "Add New Item" -> "Mobile Web Form".  There is no longer separate website/project type for mobile application in version 2.

    You would need to use some device emulator to test the page.  You can use Pocket PC emulator (Windows Mobile 2003 SDK with 2003 Emulator Images or Windows Mobile 5.0 SDK).  Here also has a list of some other device emulators.

    I believe so as those SDKs shold be independent from Visual Web Developer Express.

    You need to explicitly launch the device emulator from the sdk and open the url copied from the IE window which is launched from Visual Web Developer Express.  The device emulator is not automatically integrated with Visual Web Developer Express so you need to do this extra step manually.

    With the SDK you installed, can you locate the Pocket PC emulator from Start->All Programs menu?  Sorry that I currently do not have access to an installed SDK and cannot tell you the precise steps.
