That's more or less what happens (though not exactly -- don't just pull!).
But basically, you remove one screw, slide out the power supply, then slide
out the disk drive assembly. Presto! -- you're looking at the SIMM slots.

Yes, you can, but basically there's no reason to unless you're using a 19"
monitor. For example, the 512K of VRAM built in gives you 8 bit color on
13" and 16" color displays, but you don't get 24 bit color until you've
installed all six VRAM SIMMs.
FYI, I currently have 2 Mb VRAM and 20 Mb RAM in my Q700. And I'm in love. :-)
