Wii games run in a "Wii mode"
Nothing designed specifically for the Wii U will work with Wii games.
No, you can't use the pro controller on Wii games. If you want to use a regular type of controller on the Wii U when playing Wii games, then buy the controller they made for the Wii that plugs into the bottom of the wiimote.

No. That game requires motion control for some parts (i.e. to control platforms). The Pro controller doesn't have any motion capabilities so they chose to leave it out. You can use the gamepad or a regular Wii remote.
