What are these forms: かけちゃお, つないじゃお?
Is this って equivalent to 「と」?

From the Ponyo theme song:

ペータペタ ピョーンピョン 
足っていいな かけちゃお! 

Why is 足 given the て conjugation, as if it's a verb? I usually only see that for 足る, which has nothing to do with feet. What's going on here grammatically?

This isn't a verb -- it's the usual quotative って. The meaning is hence something like "These things called feet are neat, aren't they. Let's have a run!"
