    You'd want to put public facing servers there. If somebody did manage to break into one of those servers then they'd only get access to the DMZ network.

    The ASA5505 doesn't. You need a ASA5510 or better and put a SSM into it. The ASA5505 does have a SSC slot but Cisco hasn't released anything that actually uses it. The AIP-SSM if you want IPS and the CSC-SSM if you want antispyware etc...

    Depending on how much work you want to put in you can improve the existing protection using Inspection policies, it only really scratches the surface though, as tiersten said you really need a dedicated IPS. You could always put Untangle inline with your ASA inside though, I'm planning to give that a go this weekend at home.
