  1. Yes you can, however they MUST be the same type (both DDR4 or DDR3)
  2. It's not guaranteed to work, usually its ok but there is a chance of problems. Even RAM of the same brand and model can have problems of not bought as a matched kit, its why matched kits exist.

    They work, but if you are plan to overclock, don't enable XMP with mixing different RAM brands.
  5. There is a good chance it will work ok but it is possible to have problems. As said it can happen that even the same make and model has issues, its why its recommended to by matched sets and not individual separate sticks. You won't know if it will work until you try it.
