I know that my canon 50D doesn't have ability to shoot video, but i have heard that the software can be hacked, or that there exists some "crack" to make possible for 50D to record videos and that microphone can be also connected. Is it True? If so anyone knows how can it be done?

It's possible to record video with Canon 50D if you use the Magic Lantern Firmware. From the Magic Lantern Wiki:
There's also a short video on Youtube showing that it's possible to record video with ML.
I confirm it's possible to do video on 50d - without sound, with MagicLantern. Sounds would have to be recorded separately with another device, and synced.
Recorded video on the 50d cannot be played back on the camera. You will only be able to review it once you're on the computer.
