ns2 does not consider fading. There is an extension available from CMU
that can be ported to the actual version of ns2:
Additionally, only one interfering packet is considered. If the original
received power is high enough, the frame will not be discarded, if it's
too low, the frame will be discarded. The ratio of received to
interfering power is compared to CPThresh and thus it's decided, whether
the frame is discarded or not.
Check the mailinglist-archives for some more details.

A node following 802.11 or 802.11b will do this, yes. In 802.11a or
802.11g FEC is adopted so that the errors might be corrected.
