Re: Switches Port fast

Yes, you can enable it globally using "spanning tree portfast default"

Your switchport has to be access mode in order to take effect

Yes, it won't impact current port activity.

BTW, if you use portfast, you should also use BPDUGuard.  Even with BPDUGuard, you increase the chances off a L2 loop happening, but this additional risk is often considered acceptable.  Lastly, are you using rapid-STP?  If not, you might want to consider using it.
