    Question 1 is yes, though I haven't done this personally. I've only stored document files. (safe way is to test the app by copying one back onto your imac and running it)

    Question 2 is yes, if the drive fits. Once installed, you can start-up from the OSX cd, and use the disk tools, (in the menu bar) to format the drive. You can use same CD to install the system. Again, if it doesn't work, just return the original drive back inside the imac.
