Hi Dear Customer the answer to your question is yes aswell as no. Yes if the width of the new UPVC door is exactly same as old door because the length of the euro cylinder(of old door) should match the width of new door including the handles otherwise it will not fit and may need a new lock.

Yes it's a euro lock held in place by a screw very easy to remove and replace in your new door

The euro cylinder is very easy to change from one door to another , depending on the door they may be different lengths / centres on the cylinder as some are off set , look on line should be able to find instruction quite easily

If the thickness of the door is the same then yes

Yes of course it's very simple it a screw that's a differnt shape to other across the mech, it could also look like a blank hole if so use a small allen key.
