You can't install a Q6600 on an X58 motherboard due to differing sockets. You will need an i7-9xx to use on an X58 motherboard or an Intel 3/4 series chipset motherboard (P45, X48, P35, X38) or earlier to run your Q6600.

Corsair would be a good choice and 550-600W should be sufficient for a typical single GPU PC. Aim for 800 if you plan on adding a second GPU

Completely overpriced, but yes, that sort of thing. Check out asus and gigabyte motherboards with x48 chipsets. They'll be cheaper and better featured.

Edit: doesn't even need to be X48 if you're not running a crossfire configuration, the P45 would probably be sufficient

Yes, the GTX280 will need a PCIe x16 slot to release it's full potential

The graphics card will need both the 6pin and 8pin PCIe power lead from the PSU connected to work. They should be clearly labeled.

I should check your PC takes standard ATX power supplies as well. Some HPs have unusual mounting holes in the case for the PSU.

PCIe2.0 offers twice the bandwidth over 1.1 but largely a 1.1 connection won't bottleneck single GPU cards. If you're buying a new motherboard though, it's worth chekcing it's PCIe 2.0.
