    All are compatible with all... Except the speeds are the things that change. And the cable must be the SATA version compatible.
    Example, motherboard has SATA 2 port and you put in a HDD which is connecting using a SATA 2 cable, then you will get the SATA 2 speeds. OR if you decide to use a SATA 1 cable, you will get SATA 1 Speeds. If your motherboard has SATA 1 and you have SATA 2 cable, you will be stuck with SATA 1 speeds only.

    No, only in some cases. SATA 1 is the SATA version when connecting a cable. If you say just SATA then it won't mean anything. You don't know what it means whether it is SATA 1,2 or 3. You are just speaking about the type of connector.

    As I told you, it is all about speed. Learn more about differences here.

    Yes. all have the same SATA port. It is this:
    NOTE: Here, SATA1 and SATA2 aren't the versions. They are the port number on the motherboard.

    Google is your friend and a simple search would tell/show what the differences are.

    There are 3 types of SATA - I, II, III. All use the same interface; a SATA port. As stated by gamerblackacid; the difference between the 3 are the speeds of the data throughput.
