Yes you can. SATA 3 is backwards compatible.

No issues as long as you have the correct SATA drivers.

But, be aware that there will be NO increase in speed between a HDD on either SATA II 3.0Gbps or SATA III 6.0 Gbps ports.

No HDD even comes close to the bandwidth limit(s) of SATA II, much less III.
