If you fully understand how potato-starch is used, and I mean "fully" - you would be in a position to adapt to cassava.
I seriously doubt anyone who has extensive knowledge of potato starch will find this question, so I would suggest you go looking.

Probably, yes.

The best way to answer this, though, is to try it yourself.

This isn't the best place for organic chemistry. Google yielded some good searches when I tried it, but I'm not a chemist.
