    I think you can, but it's easier to sync the things you want using iTunes.

    You can also activate Photo Stream and all your photos will be uploaded to the Cloud and then pushed to all of your iDevices. If you are worried about payware apps, you can use them in your iPad too. Every app you have purchased is linked to your Apple ID, allowing you to re-download it anywhere you want.

    I just set up my daughter's ipad mini by using her 4s iCloud backup, works great.

    Yes you can. I restored from an iPod touch backup to an iPad.
