Hi and welcome to the forum.

It sure will. A graphics card has its own memory controller, and operates fully independent from the motherboard. Thus, nothing to worry about. As long as the interface is correct (PCI-E, AGP, whichever you have), you can stick any card you want in that mothetboard.

yes.

As long as you choose a card that fits the mobo e.g PCI-e card/PCI-e mobo, AGP card/AGP mobo

System Memory such as DDR and DDR2 is different from Onboard graphical memory typically found on Video cards..When it comes to memory type on a G-card any motherboard will be fine with that..Its just the bus type you neeed to watch ( AGP/PCI-E )

You will be fine

Don't feel bad, that question shows that you at least see a potential problem. Back when I first started building PCs, I ordered a stick of DDR2 RAM for my DDR motherboard, thinking it was just a faster version, and not realizing that DDR2 doesn't fit in DDR slots.
