I wouldn't spend much on a 550 MHz G4. Max out the RAM and put a fresh install of Panther or Tiger on it, and anything other than simple web pages and word processing is going to be a strain. Web...

Shades is a helpful utility for dimming one of the displays but there is no way I know of to sleep them individually. For a permanent exhibition it would be a good use for an old model Mac Mini.

I think AirTunes is a safe bet. AirTunes allows you to stream music from iTunes to an Airport Express (http://www.apple.com/airportexpress/).

For decent performance and dual displays, you could get a 2X/4X AGP Radeon 9800 Pro (Mac edition), which is pricey, very pricey. OWC (www.otherworldcomputing.com) sells them for around $210.
