I'm starting to work on a "SecurityBot"!

This is the list of features needed on the robot

1. Mounted Airsoft gun that moves 180 degrees
2. Has a decent chassis that will be able to go up and and down stairs at a moderate speed
4. Wireless webcam with full 360 degree (pan and tilt)
5. I want to aim the gun with my mouse through a program like RoboRealm or Paintball Sentry
6. Be able to use my own Xbox controller to control all of this wireless through my computer

I already have a gun picked out and a chassis but I don't know how to make it faster, I also have a webcam but I don't understand how I could see through it on my computer if it is connected to a robot. I don't understand how to connect a usb webcam to a robot either. I figure I will use an Arduino but im not sure how to power that wireless either.

I'm sorry I have so many questions, I just started working on this and I did as much research as I could but I just don't understand somethings.

This is the Airsoft gun I am looking at: http://www.dickssportinggoods.com/product/index.jsp?productId=3994215&cp=4406646.4413993.4414427.12115093

And this is the chassis: http://www.robotmarketplace.com/products/ML-MMP40TB.html
Is there anyway I can build this for a lot cheaper?

Thanks in advance,
