From the network side there shouldn't be any problem. I guess your access layer switches will use same VLAN (or broadcast domain) for interfaces connected to the server and up to the core layer, so if you'll configure the server, to use one int as primary and second as a backup, it will work (if i understand well what you're trying to achieve). If not, correct me.
Yes, they will work fine. You will need to use some sort of teaming software on the servers which teams both interfaces togather to perform loadbalancing. This software creates a virtual interface on the Windows Servers which you will configure with relevant IP configurations etc. You will not assign IPs to individual physical interfaces but you will assign IP address to that virtual interface and both individual physical interfaces will be the team member inside that virtual interface.
On the switch side you will configure Switchports normal. You can connect both interfaces to only one switch or 2 different switches as you wish.
its straight forward but let us know if you need more help
