First Off, Read this topic.

You'll have to format your entire hard disk before installing OSX. So make a backup of your windows machine and the installer

 

1) No

2) No

3) GraphicsEnabler=No

4) Depends on your hardware 

5) If you have a Windows USB Installer /DVD. Yes you can

If you are going for gaming, both the GT610 & the GT620 are pretty bad choices. But if you're going for just light - casual usage of your computer, any of them will suffice just fine.
