Both motherboards are H61, they will work no diffrent from eachother. The LGA775 fan will NOT work with the new board, unless its a newer aftermarket fan.

Yes, it will work, it's a sandybridge cpu, no need for bios update.
Both motherboards are about the same quality/specs.
You'll have to buy a new cooler.
Also check if the used cpu is really worth it vs retail prices.
