    I think it's just video.

    There are probably integrated cables with audio wires too (5 plugs) but regular 3-plug component cables do indeed carry only video.

    You have three video cables which carry the pictures and two separate cables which carry the stereo sound...

    Good quality phono plugs are the usual way of making the connections.

    Yes, just for video. They are normally 75 Ohm coaxial cable, can either be terminated with phono's, or the higher quality BNC's (true 75 Ohm impedance)

    Normally the BNC's are found on more expensive kit, ie Tag DVD32R, and a CRT Front Projector.

    Because of the impedance, you can use longer cables than S-Video.
