Answer: 
Yes. A 20 amp circuit breaker is designed to protect 12 gauge wiring from overheating A 15 amp circuit breaker is designed to protects 14 gauge wire from overheating. The device itself will draw about a half (0.55) amp using a 60 watt light bulb or about 0.9 amps using 100 watt light bulb.

Answer: 
How many are you putting on the circuit and what size bulb will you be using? What else is on the 20amp circuit?
Amps = Watts/Voltage
Amps = 65watt bulb (?) / 120V = approx. 0.6amps
You could put several 65Watt bulbs on a 20 amp circuit.

Answer: 
Yes. IC housings permit insulation around and over the can. Also note that there is a temperature sensor in the can that opens the circuit (turns off the light) if it overheats.

There is no easy answer to your question. The indicated recessed lighting fixture needs to be nailed to two ceiling joists. If you have access to the old light from above the ceiling, it will be possible, although the nailing will be difficult. If you don't have access, use of this recessed lighting fixture will require chopping a couple of holes into the ceiling. Other recessed lighting fixtures are designed for old work and can be mounted from below the ceiling without making more holes in the ceiling.
Also, the octagonal box that the pendant light is mounted to needs to be removed, which can be a difficult task. If there is access to the box from above the ceiling, you'll need to determine how the old box is mounted. If it is mounted on an adjustable hanger, it can usually be cut out with a hack saw. If it is mounted on a piece of wood, you will normally have to cut the wood and force it out which usually will cause ceiling damage. If there is no access to the box from above the ceiling, plan to cut a couple of holes into the ceiling.
Once the mechanical removal and mounting are complete, make sure that the wire was not damaged. Ensure that the new electrical connections are tight and that the only visible copper wire is on the ground wire.
This is not an easy task! If you have a lot of patience, and don't rush it, a relatively amateur carpenter/electrician can successfully replace the pendant light in a couple of days (unlike on Ask This Old House where they do it in 15 minutes.)

The slides move in and out easily and can be nailed a number of ways and provision for suspended ceilings as well. When you want a lot of light, this is the size to choose. An additional outstanding feature is the easy wire connections built in. Strip the wire and push it in place. There are enough 'push-in' slots to easily wire from one light to the next.

I was an electrician for over 20 years, and Halo 6" recessed cans were/are the most widely used cans. They work really well, but occasionally they need some part replacements, and this is why I bought my one can. I easily replaced some parts with an old worn out can with the parts from this new one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't believe it costs so little I can't believe how versatile this housing is. Easy to install with rafters or grid ceiling. I love the quick electrical connects that allows you to piggyback for other lights. One of the best deals for anything I have bought probably ever.

They install easy and everything is spaced right for spacing through the ceiling Drywall . The captive nails are a big improvement from earlier versions and competitors. The push in connectors make wiring a snap.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product Good price and quality, simple to install. Installed these for the first time ever at my house and it was super easy and the wires already had connectors on them where you just insert power wires in to.
