Yes, that will work.

It'd probably be simpler and perhaps cheaper (certainly more convenient) if you get a USB adapter that just provides phantom power, like the Blue Microphones Icicle. There are others.

Nope, no adapter needed. It steps up the 5V from the usb port.

Remember the mike uses 2mA. That's .02 amp, so its not exactly difficult to power.
