answer 1
one thing to take note of is that if you have a rod with multiple weights, use the heavier line. for example I have a 5/6 fly rod and I use a 6 weight line.

answer 2
Yes. Your rod has a line-rating which can usually be located on the rod blank. You will want to match the line weight with the corresponding rod weight. For example, if your rod is 5-weight, then you will want a 5-weight line.
