Welcome!

1. Yes, as long as it's a DOL-001 (has a digital out port in the back).
2. GC-video is cheaper, and has both an analog and an HDMI variant. On a PAL console, the SCART RGB cable is also an option, but can't do 480p.
3. A CRT isn't strictly better than a modern TV, the GC looks perfectly fine on an LCD. The component cable and the analog version of GC-video can't do line doubling so you most likely won't be able to play in 240p or 480i on a VGA monitor.
