Does Google find the cufon text just as easy as the regular formatted text?

As far as I know, Google doesn’t use so much javascript when crawling (or at a least very basic one, for some security checks).

No Seo Impact, other than the fact that your site will load a little slower with 2 additional javascript files added. allthough google takes page loading speed into account I can’t really imagine that it will really effect the outcome of a search…

Yes, a while ago Matt Cuts said that when page loading starts to affect the SERP , it would take into account loading times of about 3+ minutes ( = server timeout? :D ).

I hate Cufon, I really do. I use font-face as much as I can. Anyways, that’s not the question :) you should read this – http://blancer.com/tutorials/25019/cufon-seo-friendly-sifr-fli/

same ere, and as far as I know @font-face is supported in all browsers used by 2day starting from IE7 so I can’t really see any need in using cufon instead unless the font doesn’t look good with @font-face

I believe there is a time and place for both. Many fonts/sizes will render really poorly in IE using font-face.
