It will absolutely get ICS, but it will not be untouched by Samsung's development team.

Can't you just kill touchwiz? uninstall it or stop it from running like you can with HTC sense?

You cannot as it's integrated with the framework, Sense also also continues to run as well. You can surely install another launcher but the rest of the phone will still have touchwiz all over it. Maybe something with a theme but that's just way to much junk to put on to "hide" something. The other problem is Samsung in their infinite wizdom rebuilt the default apps. So Phone, Contacts and Calendar are integrated with Framework as well so if the framework isn't there those apps no longer run.
As for the Vanilla ICS - it's highly unlikely but i'd hope they don't feel the need to replace the default ICS stuff, just like they did on Honeycomb on Tablets. They added their custom widgets in an overlay but it's basically still stock. I'd love if they only did that to Android 4.0.

The only problem with a Cyanogen ROM is that sometimes things don't work the way they should and battery life can also suffer. This is just what I've noticed on my Captivate. It might be different for other phones.

It entirely depends on a few factors, mainly what's available already for the phone. For example, with the Infuse, we have no HDMI out and no A2DP bluetooth. This is largely because we don't even have Gingerbread code for the Infuse yet since AT&T hasn't released it.
Generally though, CM would give you better battery life than a lot of other ROMs because it doesn't have as much crap running. I've never had battery issues with my Infuse or my Captivate on CM7.
