Yes, of course it will. The less you boost, the better, but there have been plenty of people to have used FMU's at low psi levels with success. Just don't push your luck. I would say 8psi max on an FMU.

to be even more careful you can take out the wastegate spring (if its an external gate)

im not sure if you can disable an internal gate...but just try not boosting and you will be fine

Unhook, as in unhook the arm, not the hose, yes. The turbo will spool minimal with the arm unhooked. With the hose unhooked it will spool infinite, which would be fun for about 14 seconds until your rods say hello to your hood.
