1- yes you can and no it is not.

2- you can upgrade the ios and you get it from of course. You need a support account to be able to download ios.

3. yes you can.

good luck :-)

The 2500 ram looks like the old dimms used for 386/486 pc's but those will not work. You need to buy it from cisco's used equipment dealers or ebay.

You should upgrade to 12.x software.
