    What format is the "data" in?

    Standard file formats don't need any conversion, more exotic stuff and things like text files and program settings probably need some conversion.

    Yes, you can use a FAT32-formatted external hard drive to transfer data between the computers.

    Applications will not work, but .DOC, XLS, PPT and the like should work fine.
