I dunno about #1, but Azureus is implemented in Java.  You can control it 
via it's swing interface.  It also has a built-in tracker that you can 
use.  It's open-source, though.  You can get that from sourceforge.

I don't know why closed-source product would be a requirement for you, but 
even if you told me why I still wouldn't know of any closed-source BT 
clients (not that there aren't any, I just don't keep track of them).
