On the keyboard, there should be a mic button down next to the spacebar. The mic button usually will not show up if you have the numbers/characters side up. After you tap the mic button, phone should say "speak now" or something similar.
Yes, you can consider the front facing camera as facetime. Facetime is an app that is included on the iPhone.
If you need/want to use video calling, Skype by far is the best. Uses 3g quite easily, even better on wifi. There are a number of apps on Google Play. Search for video calling. There are many good Android versions.
