I'v been doing research and MCU's and wireless connections in hopes of remotely controllingAX-12s wirelessly. I stumbled across the Bluesmirf devices and have a few questions.

Could this be plugged dirently into the AX-12 network and completely avoid the need for a microcontroller?

You would have to at least insert logic to do full-duplex->half-duplex (both hardware on the robot side, and some mods to software on the PC side)

Also, the baudrate of the Bluesmirf may be too low to control a bunch of AX-12s

Most people are probably reducing the amount of bandwidth used by having the on-board micro do most of the stuff and basically convert "GO FORWARD" into actual leg movements.
