Your questions are leading to multi step answers.
So you can browse through these articles and google if not enough. http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms143516.aspx
True and if you are not sure its better to go through referred articles and once it is installed you can either take help of Microsoft support for a checkover, as 64 bit installations are increasing enough and they are interested in optimizing Customer installations. Satya SKJ
