Yes you can run it. Can you play all the latest games? Maybe, maybe not.

Backup is never a bad idea.

1. Yes
2. It depends if there is a 64bit version
3. Too many variables to answer definitively
4. ALWAYS
5. See #4

Your post suggests you have 4GB of RAM, your Sys Specs claim 2GB. And that's on the low side if you want to run x64. Add more RAM or go with x86.

The benefit is that you can use all 4GB of RAM.

Backup is not mandatory. Only a smart idea.

It depends on the game. Some perform better in 64-bit, some worse.

The answer of course is to try and then decide for yourself....
