As I understand, yes to both though make sure you upgrade to CE Phoenix version which works to at least PHP 7.3 and is fully responsive on small devices.

There are people that have updated an older version to work on a later version of php. I tried doing it to my current site which is running on an Edge/Frozen hybrid and there were so many errors and warnings on almost every page in both the shop and admin that I left it as it was and started developing a new store using the latest Phoenix. It seemed at the time to be the easiest, but beware that there are lots of addons that are not useable on Phoenix without being updated also.

You will have to go through any addons or code changes to see if they are available for Phoenix. Most of the more popular addons are already useable, but there are many that are not. Phoenix is still currently morphing into what it wil lend up as, so there is a lot of work involved to stay on top of things once you have updated, but it will be well worth the trouble.  If nothing else your new site will be responsive.
