I have just started in Objective-C and iOS over the last couple of years but let me see if I can help by answering some of your questions I have seen in this chain.

Objective-C development
You can do this on a PC but if you are intending to develop for iOS then you will need a Mac.

MonoTouch
I looked into this and you still need XCode to work with the nib files (think resource file in VS). Though I think that Xamarin is working on a replacement for even this well. My opinion is that you will ultimately have to pay $300+ for Xamarin plus an additional $100 for your apple developer license. Since I am cheap I steered away from the Xamarin approach.

mac mini
Yes you can use this as a development machine. I had initially thought about going this route as well but I needed a new development machine so I went with an iMac about 3 years ago and now have a mac book as well.

learning o-c
I learned smalltalk many years ago and can feel the similarities between the two. I know very little about RoR but can see some similarities there as well.
as if the facebook, twitter and message boards weren't enough - blogged
