No, not as an upgrade. A fresh install is necessary.

The answer is "usually"

Windows 7 has tremendous hardware support across the board but there are always a few outliers. If your computer was purchased from an OEM (which is likely considering that XP x64 was OEM only) then there may be hardware in there which does not have Windows 7 drivers.
