No. The PlayStation 3 doesn't have the PlayStation 2's input sockets for the controllers. However, Sony were planning to release a USB adaptor for the PS3 so that you could use your old controllers. It was never released, and is never being released in the UK, but I'm not sure about other territories such as the US or Japan.
PS3 Dualshock 3 controllers are Bluetooth although they also work with a USB cord that is only a limited wired use. PS2 does not get or have Bluetooth so the controllers could not work wirelessly on a system that does not have Bluetooth
The PS2 game will probably work, but the controllers/peripherals probably won't.
You can connect up to 7 controllers. And if people want to use the PlayStation Move while playing, (using 2 controllers) you can have 3 people using it, and have 1 person using the original controller, or 2 people using PlayStation Move and 2 people using original controllers, and etc.
No, PlayStation 2 controllers cannot be used on the PlayStation 3 due to the fact that the ports are different, Although you could rewire the end of the playstation 3's usb plug in for when you are charging the controllers to the ps2 controller, but that would be pointless.

Why does the PlayStation 3 wireless controllers stop working when the battery fails to take a charge?
The Playstation 3 wireless controllers stop working when the battery fails to take a charge because they operate on a charged battery.

How much should I sell my PlayStation and PlayStation 2 and 19 PS2 games and 3 controllers and 2 memory cards for?
I'd say somewhere between 120-200 dollars. That's how much I'd pay. But with people today you might have to go down to 100 or less.
No you can't because the Wii console won't recognize the disc because it's a different game system. But you can use a PlayStation disc on a PlayStation 2 or PlayStation 3.
Dual Shock 3 controllers can be purchased for less than full retail and run about $40-45 amazon also has a few bundled with games for the retail price of the controllers.
