PCI-E 4x into PCI-E 1x does work if the PCI-E 1x slot has an open back.
PCI-E 4x will NOT go into a PCI slot. Despite the similarity in name they are completely different connectors and are not backwards compatible.

No. Although they share a similar name, PCI-e is in no way related to PCI other than the fact that it was created to replace the aging PCI and AGP slots.
