Yes, but please note that as your router has a low amount of flash space it may not perform well under Gargoyle.

Yes, but your router will be unstable and may not work well.

It may be, if it's a supported version. Version 1.2 is, version 2.0 is not. There's limited support in Lede for 2.0, but it looks like full support won't happen anytime soon.

OpenWRT main page for the Archer product line: https://wiki.openwrt.org/toh/tp-link/archer-c5-c7-wdr7500

Sub-page for c5 v2:
