ZSTAR / ZSTAR2 questions

I have read the ZSTAR and ZSTAR2 documents with great interest. They are near perfect for a bio-mechanical application. Still I have some questions regarding these reference designs:
The ZSTAR and ZSTAR2 are reference designs which can be ordered as evaluation kits. However, the if design matches my requirements, is it possible/allowed to reuse the design and firmware for fabrication. Or can sensorboards and USB receivers be ordered as freescale products? For this product I would like to spend as less time as possible developing hardware and firmware.
Furthermore, is it possible to order an evaluation kit containing e.g. 4 sensor boards and a single USB receiver? And, is my understanding correct that it is possible to read/access multiple sensor boards using a singleUSB receiver? What information rate can one expect when reading e.g. 4 sensors simultaniously?
Also I am more than interested in experiences regarding effective range, is 60meters possible?
With kind regards,
