You can install ALMOST anything in Ubuntu...
For the Compiz problem, did you try the Hardware Drivers manager yet to see if there were any drivers for your video card? (System>Administration>Hardware Drivers)

I haven't had any experience with Intel cards but you should be able to find quite a few posts here on the board that should help you. Try the "Tutorials and Tips" section or "Multimedia and Video".
