You must also note that, if your application listens to network connections, you may ensure it's secure. If not, your VPS could be compromised, and it could even be suspended if, in some way, compromises OVH network(excessive traffic, brute force attacks, high cpu consumption, etc.). A good suggestion is to run it as a non-privileged user; chroot is also a good alternative.

yes, you're given root access and you can install anything you want (also, you'll have to do it yourself, the servers are unmanaged). As Razakel says, it's got to be legal and if you need a license, you need to obtain it, but apart from that, you're free to install anything you want.

Yes. It's your server: you can do whatever you want with it, as long as it's legal.
