And don't use lead-free on lead soldered boards and components.

Yes. Just be aware that leadless solder does have a slightly higher melting point, so it's not quite as easy to work with.

I would imagine so since there are people using only leadless solder. But I haven't tried it yet so I'm just guessing.
