Since it's Java based then there are no special things to do, it will be exactly the same way it can be integrated with any other java based solution. Alternatively you can consider to use jBPM as a service and access its capabilities via REST/JMS interface.

Reporting capabilities are available in jBPM. In version 5.x they are based on Eclipse BIRT and provides only basic reports out of the box. In version 6 there is state of the art BAM component integrated with jBPM that provides huge amount of reporting and monitoring capabilities, take a look  http://vimeo.com/57973815 here for bit of preview. Please not that the video is slightly outdated but it should give yousome context of what's comming.
Unfortunately I don't know enough about Actitii Explorer to judge but most likely jBPM covers what is important from process managment point of view (process and tasks operations). See on the video some capabilities of the console too, just make a note that it has been enhanced a lot since that time.

Yes, integration with LDAP is possible out of the box. Usual case is when the jBPM runs inside the container (e.g. JBoss Application Server) and then you can laverage the power of the JAAS system. Configure the authentication and authorization on application server and jBPM will rely on that regardless if that is based on LDAP or DB or whatever else.
