No, you won't have a problem with the 5m long cable.

I have been using 15m long cable and everything was OK. Only thing that you should consider is that cable must be with good shield on longer distances (10+). Normally, that kind of VGA cable is fatter then normal one.

That depends on the quality of the VGA signal of your computer, the cable itself and the projector.

In your case, with a 5m long cable, I would only use a screen resolution of 1024x768 pixels. Higher resolutions will likely work but especially things like small fonts will be displayed blurry.
