Vans do not give like a magical ability to skateboard, however, they do enable you to keep better balanced and comfort while skateboarding. The inside of the vans, like most skateboarding shoes, have a soft inside that does not rub the skin. The bottom of vans and other skateboarding shoes are flat which also helps the balance of the skater.
You can skateboard in any shoes but converse are not considered skateboarding shoes. Most Converse shoes are casual like Jack Purcell, Chuck Taylors, etc. However, Converse also has some skateboarding style shoes as well, such as: Volitant, Kiro and Karve Ox, which main purpose was skateboarding, now people use them as casual.
It's pretty much your opinion. Some people like to do BMX, others Skateboarding, but do what your best at, and what you like doing. Personally I like scootering, it's easier, and cheaper. But, I don't think it's an official sport like BMX and Skateboarding. I think you can get sponsored like Dakota Schuetz.
