It is certainly possible. Not very difficult either. However, the only
difference you will notice as a user is that you are running the linux
kernel. All the GNU/ Unix user space is present on OS X. It is a bit of a
struggle to get all the hardware working though, you will have to evaluate
if you really need the linux kernel.

No, you need to use rEFit. There is detailed procedure to do this at several
places on the internet.
