Hello,

1. I am reasonably sure that Redhat 9 is no longer supported...
2. Not sure, but probably not
3. During the installation, Fedora will give you the choice where to install. As long as you have free space (or simply overwrite your RH9 install) everything will be fine and your MS partition will not be touched. Just pay attention and don't click 'ok' blindly.

Yup,

except Fedora instead of Redhat...

As I said, I am not sure about an upgrade from RH -> Fedora, might as well try, the worst it can do is tell you no.
