Does anybody know where to get the expected cross section for Z at the LHC (pp at 14 TeV)? (it would be great if you could provide a reference).

There's a diagram on page 27:

Which is also used here at page 29:

This is all from last weeks lepton-photon 2005 symposium.

Hope this helps.

This paper:
http://arxiv.org/abs/hep-ph?9907231
might be of use.
It appears to give the cross section times the leptonic branching ratio for a numerical simulation.
It might help.
