I wouldn't think there would be an issue. As far as I know, all that needs to be the same is the GPU and I think the memory size, but I'm not 100% certain if it has to be the exact same manufacturer.

It doesn't necessarily have to be the exact same manufacturer... but you should check to see if the clock speed, vram size, and if the gpu itself is the same. Better to play it safe.

As long as the clock/mem speeds are the same you should be good to go. Give it a shot. I'd think the worst it can do is not display on your monitor. Then you'll know for sure!

It will be fine if they are from different vendors. If you have them at different speeds though there may be some small issues.

Manufacture doesn't matter as long as they are more or less the same is specs (Core speed,etc). The type of VRAM used doesn't matter at all.

When I said vram, I meant its clock speed.
