[...] Also, on torque, what is the minimum amount of torque to get a 5 pound robot to move?
Im planning on using a 6-7.2V battery to power it if that matters also....
I don't think that you want this motor, the torque is more than adequate, but it says its RPM is 2. So your robot will move at a really slow crawl.

So your robot will move at a really slow crawl.As you said, there is torque to spair, so couldnt I fool around with gears and get the RPMs up? Or would I not be able to trade off enough to make a difference?
With that said, how many RPM with 1.5'' wheels is good to get the robot moving at a decent speed? I dont know how much speed is decent so I'll leave that for your interpretation.
I really like the motor that MechHead posted, http://www.robotmarketplace.com/products/0-BHG31.html, I assume 200 RPM is good? And with the battery i posted above, is a 700 mA draw too much?
What motor controller are you planning on using for this project? Conscripted
