yep for the first question and yep for the second you can also go and by a slime line fan and mount that right in front of the radiator when you want to but you will not need that for a stock engine.

The fan is too far away from the rad to make a significant difference. It needs a shroud or something to direct the air to the rad, otherwise the air will just go in all sorts of directions and not blow directly at the rad, since the fan isn't all that powerful. Is your car overheating or something? Why do you need this? Not really necessary man, especially for a stock car.

i drive my setup for about 1 year already with the AC fan and i dont have any problems the AC fan is moving a lot of air sure a shroud would be not bad but you dont need that i drove by 35-45 plus in california with my AC on no problem with the stock fan and a i guess it is a 81 88 temp switch

Speaking from my own experience, the fan will not kick in at the correct time. Your car will run too hot and yes i did have the colder temp switch. The temps on the side of the rad are cooler then the one at the thermostat. The fan would kick in when the needle just passes the middle. If you're ok with that then try it. For some reason it didn't work well for me.

P.S And the AC fan is capable of pushing way more air through the rad the the clutch fan.
