Those apps are tied to whatever Apple ID that was used to purchase them. You will have to set up the phone in iTunes for it to be recognized for installing music, etc. When you do that, you'll be using your own Apple ID and you will lose whatever apps are on there. They are only available to whoever purchased them. If you want them, you'll have to purchase them.

If you sync it to your library, you'll loose all of the music, video and apps on the phone. There's no straightforward/legit way to keep the apps mate.

You can download Tuneaid (it's not free though) for your mac or PC and use that to extract the music (and video too I think), then import the extracted files into your iTunes.

As far as the apps, I think you'll just have to loose them.

Well, yes, there's a way to avoid losing the apps -- write down which ones you want, then purchase them.
