Hi Tim

You can use all HO 's on ALL tracks......they all use the same power...... check clearances , you may have to tweek.

For the most part, yes.  Power supplies need to be in the 18v DC range, some cars like different ohm range controllers, early lock and jointer Aurora track has a shallower slot than modern track which may require you to trim guide pins.
