Yes you can.
Just make sure the HT+/power supply doesn't cross over the tuner circuit ,keep the power supply away from the aerial input.

Yes its okay you are replacing them directly into the soldered copper PCB holes occupied by the old capacitor .


Keep the pins soldered as close as you can to the board.

Yes that's alright , you are working on the power supply , it wouldn't be alright if it was the RF section.

It actually depends - some capacitors should be mounted strictly vertically.
But most of those are big snap-in or screw terminal ones. For smaller PCB caps (especially the ones with "scored" aluminium top plate) mounting position is not that important.
