How many tuner dvbs2 can handel TVheadend?

There is a limit to the number of DVB adapters that can be handeled by Linux. That is currently set to 8 dvb adapters. You can manually patch the required source code to increase this value. Tvheadend has been configured to look for the dvb adapters at the following location: /dev/dvb/adapter%d where %d is a number between 0 and 31 So in theory tvheadend can curently handle 32 adapters but also this can be changed.

per frequency how many channels??

This is dependend on your DVB provider and how they have set up their systems.

can i use TVheadend and run VLC player

As far as I know you can use VLC player to play the streams from tvheadend but there are some issues with it.

all i need is a group of multicAST GROUP THEN CONEVERT TO unicast

At the moment tvheadend does not send out multicast streams, only unicast.

If you do not need any of the DVR or EPG features (looks like that can be handled by Beesmart) then maybe dvblast (http://www.videolan.org/projects/dvblast.html) might be something to look at?

The unicast is for http streaming ...

have a look at this page for newcs configuration (although i would pick oscam instead of newcs):
https://www.lonelycoder.com/hts/tvheadend/docs/2_12/index.html
and then paragraph 4.7 CWC configuration

Distro is more a personal choice .. what you are familiar with.
I would pick ubuntu (server) and depending how "critial" it is .. the 10.04 LTS for production ues or 11.04 "to play" or home use.
