You should be able to use the compilers without having Visual Studio itself. Microsoft has the compilers available for download in
the platform SDK. Note that I don't know where they are, since I too have Visual Studio, but they are available there.

You should be able to load any environment variables you want to into properties using the
'environment::get-variable()' function.

<property name="env.path" value="${environment::get-variable('path')}" />

Are you saying that you can't do this? If so, that sounds like a bug in NAnt, or maybe not using the 'inheritall' property on a
'nant' task that calls another build file. I regularly use environment variables to account for differences between various
machines on which the build is done.
