  1. 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.
