|Barriers and dismounting is what cross is all about. Well, that and a whole lot of other fun. No, you don't have to dismount if you can bunnyhop the barriers. Yes, you can race with a mtb - I did, as do many others. It also allows you to give the sport a try before investing in a cx specific bike.
Here are a few helpful sites to answer any other questions you may have:
