Yes - any atx form factor psu will fit. If your case has a vent above the psu location, put the fan on top. If there is no vent, put the fan on the bottom.

No. If you want to be extra careful, use a 120mm exhaust fan at the rear, just below the psu. The case has a mounting area for this already in place.

For this use, just about any fan will be fine. If your motherboard has two pwm connections (one for cpu fan, second for case fan), get a pwm controlled case fan that will vary speed based on temperature. If you do not have the second pwm header, get something like the coolermaster sickle flow.
