Yes you can put lyrics in the Notes section. Also there is a calendar, contacts and games which you can easily fool around with.

Currently the iPod Mini (1st and 2nd Gen.) are not supported by iPodLinux - so I wouldn't try it just yet if you're a novice to this type of dealio.

you can listen to music. bit of a silly question. mp3 players arnt built for games and organizers and whatnot, they are for listening to music on the go.

^ is a program where you can make your own

Try googling for some iPod text games, they have quizzes, roleplay, etc.
