Cisco VOIP Question

I have the following at my main office:

1.  CUCM 9.1.2
2.  Unity Connection 9.1.2
3.  Cisco 2921 Router (H.323) Voice gateway.

We have a small branch office, that is not on the VOIP system.  They just have 5 old school phones connected to analog lines.  They just have a receptionist that answers the phone.  They want to be put on our VOIP system, so they can have autoattendant, VM to email, etc.  I have a few questions about this:

1.  Could I just install a Cisco voice gateway router at this branch office with two VIC2-4FXO cards and connect to phone lines lines to it?  
2.  Would I then add this new gateway to CUCM?
3.  Could I configure separate call handlers that would pick up when someone calls their phones lines coming off their gateway router?

In short yes, that is exactly what you would do.  But I have not actually had to do this.  But you may have another option depending on if the offices are networked.  You could just have the Analog lines ported to your main CUCM as DIDs and just install IP phones at the office.  Dont even really need the voice router at the site, unless you need SRST and other features.
