1st question: no

2nd question: yes

I think the answer to No. 1 is actually maybe.

If the O/s on the HDD is Win 9x then yes it probably will work. But you may need to update drivers.

If the O/S is 2000/XP then it will probably not work.

If your going to attempt it, back up the HD. I think you'll find it probably won't work and all in all would be better to do a fresh install on a new system.
