1. I would guess that ARCMAIN is probably already on the systems in question so I would say you already have the needed software...
2. Named pipes are not magic so I would guess you could figure that part out too. I am guessing that you do not need a special version of ARCMAIN to connect to a named pipe. This may be an incorrect assumption but from personal experience I have found few occasions where there was a problem writing/reading from a pipe with some software that would normally be interfacing to a physical device of some type.
3. You probably already have some sort of IP network based connectivity between the systems so you are probably good there as well. While I am guessing the maybe the PS guys cable up a direct connection between the systems when they do their NPARC thing to avoid impacting (and being impacted) the customer network, you could probably manage the impact using your own network for this likely one time event. (Note that I would agree with you that anyone with two or more TD system physically co-located such that a direct connection of this type is possible might want to have that in place all the time for a myriad of potential uses). While I have never done anything like the NPARC thing on a Teradata box, it is quite similar in concept to things I have done in the past to move large amounts of data from one non- Teradata RDBMS to another using named pipes. In short, while there is probably some learning curve, it is probably well within the capabilities most TD sites.
Mind you, I am not saying the NCR PS guys are not worth every dime of what they would charge to do this for you....but...sum it all up and it would seem to me that you might already know a lot of what you would need to try something like this....
