Yes, it will work, and for a DVDRW you would not notice a speed difference.

No, you are fine with the one you have - all SATA is backwards compatible. It is only if you were using an SSD or SATA3 HDD would it matter.

Even with SSD the cable makes no difference in speed.

To be honest, I just use the free software for burning- FreeBurner or ImgBurn (for ISO). AS for media, get a good brand name if the stuff you are burning is vital. For paid for software, I'd go for Nero for all round use.
