Just depends on the pH. Most peat moss is little acidic. I'm assuming you don't have a meter so a 4:1 peat/cos ratio should be ok to use if you've got the stuff. If not, don't sweat it. I'm using straight peat/verm. with good results.

Chalk is the same thing. I assume you have a Staples or Officemax or Walmart or some such near you.

Yes. You can also use crushed eggshells. Its all basically calcium carbonate.
