The pictures are generated, I (well, Kalzium) draws them! Therefore you can of 
course use them. I have no clue about licences, but I am fine with any free 
licence and integration within Wikipedia.

I am again not sure here, but I guess that you don't even need to do this as 
you'd basically take screenshots of an application.

All data cames from BlueObelisk:


It has already been discussed if it is possible to share data, I am not sure 
about the status... Shortversion: Kalzium doesn't have any (own) data, all we 
use is a local copy of BlueObelisk which is synced every KDE release.
