    A USB headset would be better.

    If your default recording device is stereo mix your USB mic won't work. It has to be set to mic. Creative sound cards call it What you Hear.

    It's cheap. Try it. No way of knowing if it will work or not. It might be junk.

    What headset? I've not seen any that use a single cable (for PC use).

    In any case, a splitter won't work. If it is a single cable, the connector has more than three contact points and likely requires a specialty adapter to split out the audio and mic.
