I just sliced up some oak firewood into little smoker-sized chunks with my bandsaw. Is the bark good for smoking? What about the lichen & moss & spiderwebs and all the other ecology in the bark, must I remove all that crap too?

Deeply furrowed bark on some woods I would watch, as they could impart a taste to your meat. With those woods I would remove the bark. Spider webs, I would not be worried about. Molds and such, I would try to remove.
