Yeap, you can use the Axon to control these servos:

You'd program it in C . . . if you use WebbotLib, it'll be really easy to do.

(WebbotLib instructions come with Axon II, but the original Axon is compatible)

They're talking about "Dynamixel AX-12", which has nothing to do with the Axons, but your topic sort of tells me that you know that allready, so I don't understand the purpose of your post?

A rather fast and fairly heavy robot with quite large wheels needs what? A lot of power?

Most of the pages you list talk about PC software (hence VB, Java, etc etc) for controlling the servos. Maybe thats why you're confused. But they can definitely be controlled by a micro controller so long as it can communicate at 1000000 baud - which AVRs with a clock speed of 16MHz can do and that includes the Axon family of boards.
