a) yes
b) no

Advice: lay the new kickstart ROM flat on it's side and bend all the pins very slightly inwards, then turn it around to the other side and bend those pins inwards too.

What you want to achieve is, that the pins are all at a straight 90 degree angle to the chip body, making insertion into the socket a lot easier.

Apart from that, I don't really know what other advice to give. Put it in the same way as the old chip came out, align the dimple with the dimple in the socket.

I guess my generic advice for everything fits here (well it's generic advice, isn't it): don't screw up.
