Default MicroATX and Side Air Duct

Will MicroATX cases support a ATX mobo?

Does having a Side Air Duct mean being able to put on a Side air fan?

MicroATX cases are too small for ATX mobos. The ATX mobo's wont fit (too big). You'll need a M-ATX mobo.

Dunno about the second question.

Depends on the case.

Some ducts are attached with screws and can be removed and replaced with a fan. Some are spot welded, and can't (easily).
