You could use that, but I would suggest using the underside of the board beneath the power supply, heres a diagram. and here is a way to calculate the resister you will need.

I dont think it would, it would just take a little power from the fan which i dont see a problem in doing. I would still recommend soldering to the bottom of the board though.

The fans power won't work properly, as it's only 5v.
You need a 12v source with a 100 ohm resistor.
