looks like it is - man snd_uaudio
from manual it looks like it's standard of USB audio interfaces so all
should work - unless some manufacturers don't comply to standards.
simple get some laptop with freebsd to shop and try - it's quick just
connect and check if it works

depends of the hardware.

it MAY. cost often have no correlation with quality in PC hardware market.
It may be crap-sound or super-hifi.
In theory it's easier to get high quality because there are easier to
protect it from electrical noises as it's outside your computer.
