Answers :

If you look at the back of your computer and note where your monitor is plugged in, it should give you a hint. If it is connected in one of the expansion slots it has a video card.

\015\012Of course you need to make sure the other system has the same kind of slot available to swap. (AGP,PCI, PCI-E, etc.)
No you cant, the gateway GX7018E uses integrated graphics like the T6420. You will have to buy a cheap PCI or PCI-E graphics card to test it out.
