XFS is recommended but not 100% necessary. However there are some known
bugs with Gluster + eg ext4. I learnt that the hard way :)
Gluster needs bricks and bricks need to have size. In replicated setup
it is recommended (very recommended) to have bricks of same size. That
is those that replicate each other (replica 2).
I don't think there is a way how to setup Gluster without bricks.

If not, I wonder at why there's such an insistence on doing so at http://www.gluster.org/community/documentation/index.php/Getting_started_configure  and at http://www.gluster.org/community/documentation/index.php/Getting_started_rrqsg .
