The TA-05 suspension arms, hubs and carriers will fit and work just fine. The dogbones from the TA-05 are a couple of mm longer so I haven't tried fiting them when my TB was standard.
After reading how so many people have had trouble with TB-02 diffs I tried assembling a couple with TA-05 plastic halves left over from upgrading to aluminium. With an extra bearing, some washers and shims to fine tune the fit they've proven rock solid. I did use a pair of TA-05R drive shafts on one side as the out-drives are shorter, but it all fell together and works flawlessly.
I'm still toying with the idea of trying TB-03 diff halves but haven't got my hands on a set yet to see how they measure up.

Sort of, basically you build a TA-05 diff around the TB-02 ring gear. Just be sure to use something to pack out the longer side of the diff. I used a 15x10 bearing, a 10mm washer and a few shims so it all sits nicely inside the housing.

I doubt it would. Just had a look at mine and it has three holes through which you bolt the pulley on. The TB-02 ring gear has 10 holes for the diff balls, so you'd only get one screw in, assuming it's on the same diameter.
