I'm curious if anyone is, or knows how to use a GoPro camera for the video/audio feed during a skype call?

No I have not, but the stream format isn't native and requires a conversion as well as a virtual driver to interpret it (Manycam).  You check out this page someone made covering what software they used to accomplish the task with the Hero 3.

I have seen a go pro use wifi to trasment to a pc or mac but there is a five sec. delay. which can be very annoying in a call or a stream. I think you can also do it with a HDMI but I do not know. I have the same question .

Yes it's possible. GoPro can be used for both live streaming and as a webcam for skype or other IM. I have compiled a step by step guide on my website:
