  1. I have had no trouble at all running the ARM debs on top of the LUbuntu 13.05 U2 image; particularly since the Odroid U2 and U3 are nearly identical CPUs and boards. I know a few people that are even running the ROS navigation stack using these tools.

  2. For basic navigation, the ROS navigation stack is a good starting point and is available as pre-built debs for ARM. You won't have to write the complex algorithms, but you will still have to understand them at a basic level so that you can tune them to run well on your particular hardware. Expect this tuning to take at least a week of full-time work, once your base drivers are up and running well. The RobotSetup guide is a good place to start.

  3. Personally, I like to SSH to my robot and do everything on-board. A number of other ARM users like to set up a cross-compilation toolchain, edit and build off-board, and then copy the final binaries to their boards. I recommend that you try both approaches and see which approach works better for you.
