The lightest Football cleats right noctuaw on the market in the year 2009 is ally the Adidas Scorch Competition, Eastbay.com claims they weigh 9.0 ounces which much less than the Nike Vapor 4.2 which many people think is the lightest shoe. The cleat in general is the Nike Mercurial Vapor V FG which is 8.4 ounces, its a soccer cleat and lightest cleat on the market there is not much foot support though.
Adidas has also will be releasing their F50 adizero's May 24th, 2010 and are supposed to be only 5.8 oz...much lighter than the Nike's but I don't know how the foot support is in this one, but from the sounds of it, can't be much worst than the Mercurial Vapor's.
The cleats are molded to the sole of the shoe. Not the screw in type
Adidas phenom cleats
Soccer cleats generally are much lighter and the lightest, the adizero, weigh only 6 oz.
So far from what I've seen, Addidas' Scorch series are the lightest. I bought a pair about 3 years ago and I loved them. They do fit a bit tight width-wise but they're very light and detachable cleats are always the way to go.
The lightest are the Adidas Scorch line but they suck. You want to use Nike Vapor Jet 4.2 Or Nike Carbon Vapor Fly. If you want even lighter cleats that are under 8 ounces and are still good. Use Nike Mercurial Vapor Soccer Cleats. But be ready for your foot to hurt i you get stepped on by metal cleats. ONLY USE NIKE CLEATS!!!
There are many brands of shoes which manufacture football cleats. For instance, the Nike brand is one of many manufactureres which manufacture football cleats. Other brands of football cleats are Adidas and New Balance.

You can wear soccer cleats to play american football but it is less than ideal. Soccer cleats do not have a stud on the toe of the cleat like football cleats do. This make it much easier to run, cut and dig into the grass. Most football cleats are also higher and more supportive than soccer cleats. Although if you are a field goal kicker/ punter or kicker in American Football - they all wear soccer cleats. Basically you CAN wear soccer cleats to play American football but you CAN NOT wear American Football cleats to play Soccer.
