Hi Maria.  As an author if ivreg2, I'll attempt to answer your questions.

The short answer to question 1 is no.  The hypothetical instrumental
variables model that would exist if your suspected endogenous variables are,
in fact, endogenous, must be identified.  The exogeneity test is a modify
hausman test, i.e. to test the null hypothesis (H0) that Z1 is endogenous it
compares the estimates from a model that is consistent and efficient if H0
is true and consistent and inefficient if H0 is false (IV) versus a model
that is inconsistent if H0 is true and consistent and efficient if H0 is
false (OLS).  This test can only take place if both models can be estimated.
If you run the correct command syntax of  ivreg2 Y X2 (X1 = Z1), orthog(X2)
to test the exogeneity of X2, you will get a message stating the current
model is exactly identified so a test is not valid.

The short answer to question 2 is soon.  We are currently in our final
testing phase of an update to ivreg2 which extends the package to produce
standard errors that are consistent in the presence of autocorrelation.
