exactly what I meant! :)

Concerning your questions regarding soundcards I can't give you any helpful

Do you want to broadcast the remote speakers one by one or all of them
together? If one by one you need just 1 soundcard, one for 'playing' the
remote speaker and 'recording' it together with the local speaker (Microphon
in). This can be done by one soundcard (captering master).

yeah, this also sounds like a good solution, but on the screen you can just
fade one chanel at a time (one mouse), at a mixer you can fade both
smoothly. Having several sources (Microphone, MP3, CD-Player, ...) it is
good  to mix them analog.
