    It would work fine, you just connect the sata ports via sata cables from the bay to the motherboard connectors. I wouldn't recommend swapping the drives during operation at the risk of data loss.

    yes.

    Make sure the BIOS is set to AHCI or RAID mode, and that you install the latest drivers.
