No, the VCD standard (as the SVCD) support only mp2 as audio format.

But you can try to do mini-DVD (DVD burnt on a CD support).
Do a research on this forum I think you will find some post talking about mini-DVD.

For sure. KDVD is basically a DVD with video stream encoded according to KVCD concept.
But the rest of the DVD can contain whatever you can put on a DVD, and that include ac3 audio streams.

You must use an authoring tool that make a DVD from you mpeg2 video stream and your ac3 audio stream !

For sure, if you encode the audio and the video together with TMPGENC, you will have a 2 channel mp2 audio !
