Here is some starting information for a few of your questions:



what features it(Demo Version) will be having as compare to professional edition


Check out Pentaho Subscriptions (http://www.pentaho.com/subscriptions/).



Is it able to integrate with All databses


The Pentaho BI Server can theoretically work with any database for which there is a JDBC driver. However, it has been tested most thoroughly with MySQL. (There is a pre-packaged distribution that works with MySQL out-of-the-box.) Also, others have connected the BI Server to Oracle (http://wiki.pentaho.org/display/PentahoDoc/Configuring+for+Oracle+10g) and PostgreSQL (http://wiki.pentaho.org/display/COM/Using+PostgreSQL+8.x+for+Hibernated+Data+in+the+Platform).
