I can't find this anywhere and I haven't been able to get past the server issues. If you join a public game in say a region that has 4 other players building cities, can you chat with those players in game?

Yes, you can open region chat simply by pressing "Enter"

This will send a message to everyone playing in your region. If you wish to have individual conversations, it is best to add the player as a friend on Origin.
