Yes, it should work with no problems, temps should be ok if you properly clean the previous paste in both CPU and heatsink and apply a good quality thermal compound.

 

I would recommend you to install Middleton BIOS as well. It will unlock SATA-II speeds, and in case you have no SSD, I'd strongly recommend you get one.

Not out of the box, you will need a hardware mode for that. And I really doubt the performance jump from let's say a T9500  will be that noticeable.

I never did it myself. What I remember is that there was hardware modifications to be done on the motherboard. And then the chip would work but with few restrictions.

 

Edit: Found few links here and also here. This is some seriuos modding, if something goes wrong you may cripple your T61.
