the version of Mathematica which is started from within Workbench 
depends on you settings, not on
the Workbench version. Go to Preferences->Mathematica and adjust the 
"Mathematica Installations"

To write documentation you have to have a pacletInfo.m in your project. 
When you create a new
application project with the Workbench, you can toggle that you want a 
PacletInfo and documentation
in your project.

The rest is straight forward. Open the pacletInfo in Workbench and 
navigate to the "Documentation"-tab.

Hope this gives you a start.

Workbench be updated for Mathematica 8?

Mathematica with user code and having it blend with Mathematica's native 
stuff is a bit of a trick.  Anyone know a good source of documentation 
if I am going to skip workbench?
