I think it would work, it is essentially popcorn. The 'puffing' process should make the starches available for conversion. Just make sure there is not sugar or salt or anything in it. My best guess would be to use it pound for pound.

Yea, almost positive it will be the same. I've never done it, but I have seen pictures of a member here who brewed with popcorn.
