While some of the command syntax is the same or very similar, generally
GFA for the ST and GFA Windows are _not_ compatible. This is primarily due
to the huge difference between GEM and Windows. GFAW does have the power
to create screaming fast Windows apps, but be forewarned, you will need to
learn all about the Windows API to make use of it. GFAW is fast, but it has
none of the GUI design tools ala Visual Basic and the docs are still poor.
GFA for DOS is much more akin to GFA ST but it's not as good a product as
GFAW. Too glitchy, too slow, still no true compiler (although one is
promised RSN) and you have to worry about the DOS 640K memory barrier. Duh.

No. However there is a very capable and powerful BASIC for the Mac called
FutureBasic which I highly recommend. I don't use Think C anymore. :)
