1) Yes. You can, however, purchase complete kits that include the G540, stepper motors and power supply.

2) Yes

3) The G540 can control 4 motors, and a few inputs and outputs. It can control many types of machines, provided that you don't need more inputs and outputs than it offers.

William,
Yes to all three questions.

I respectfully advise you to continue researching what you want to do.  Others have been using cnc to cut foam wings for a few years, and many will have posted lots of exact answers to your questions.  A little time spent reading and studying now may save you headaches and wasted funds in the future.  I have never cut foam wings with cnc, so I'm not qualified to advise you with specific details.

Good luck, and enjoy,
John
