Yes as long as only capacity is different and everything else is identical.

Yes, but be careful. HP limits exactly which RAM modules you can use in their BIOS, so you will probably find the cheapest of the cheap RAM modules don't actually work in it.

HP used Crucial memory in their laptops when they were making the G6, so any Crucial module is likely to work perfectly. Crucial are pretty good value as well.

Honestly, a single 8GB DDR3 Laptop-style module is so cheap, you might as well buy two to get it to 16GB.
