  1. Depends what game it is and the publisher of the game. Some games will work but some won't work depending on the game. You could try putting the game in you console and see if it boots or not. It will either play the game or reject it straight away. Also you would need a TV that supports NTSC. Most newer tvs support both NTSC and PAL.

  2. No, you can't use NTSC games on a PAL console unless the game in question is region free. There are some utilities you can download to check your games and see what zone they are and see if they are region free. If they are, then they're going to work regardless of your console's zone.
