Answers :

Yes it is possible.
a) No precautions needed except the normal grounding you always do when working on computer components.
b) Yes, make sure your jumpers on BOTH drives are set - one to master and one to slave. The new drive does not have to go on the same cable as the old drive but no matter which cable you put it on make sure the jumpers are set for both devices on the cable.
