Pretty much. The details vary on codec / DTMF, etc. based on what
you're talking to, but that's the general idea.

Really? Why not? If it speaks SIP, it should be able to do multiple
SIP trunks / channels, and you should be able to set up a simultaneous
SIP trunk alongside your production line(s).

If you tell us the PBX, somebody here has probably worked with it.

If the old PBX speaks true SIP, you could ditch the old PBX, and have
the SIP phones register directly with asterisk.
