    You should be able to install the companion cd into the same Oracle home.  You will probably have to re-apply the patchset.

    The installer is pretty good about not doing things it shouldn't.  If you have a test system, try it and see.

    Oracle doesn't say anything about order of the install so You can probably do that.
    I don't think that any patch will be required to run it.
    You could test with virtual vmware machine,there's ora install for Unix,good for any test
