For all your four questions,the short answer is yes. But notice,小时is more formal.For instance,you always find a 小时 in newspapers,or CCTV News. Besides I think if you say 一个钟 to people who don't speak Cantonese,he MAY not understand you.Or he may,that depends. Certainly if you say 一个钟头, people know what you mean.

我觉得除中国部分南方地区如广东、广西、澳门、香港等会用外,其他地方的人都不会用。而且还或许不知道你说什么
