The answer is yes to both your queries provided that no policies are configured to prohibit you from doing so.

I have never used NComputing products. But on its site, it states that the N500 model supports wireless connectivity:

So in theory, yes it should work. Practically, you need to test it before you make any money commitments.

Can I restrict only few users to have feature to connect a usb printer.
also with vdi ..users may connect using thin client or their current pc which has their c drive disabled for writes...all will have roaming profile.

if I move one day to different office and connect to my vdi using a pc there will I automatically on login be able to see network printer on that office floor

Yes, by applying a filter to that group of users

This depends on what printer policies you have enabled. If you have enabled client printer redirection policy, then any printers configured for the client on that floor will be redirected to your Citrix session. If you have enabled session printer policy, then on login to any office, Citrix will show the network printers in the proximity of the office depending how you have filtered it.
