Answers

Four things required for a POST (Power On Self Test)

power supply

motherboard

memory

processor

Those are the only items needed in order to achieve a successful test of those components and get a POST "beep".

#1

Yes, power it on with no memory installed. If it beeps, then the motherboard is responding.

#2

plug it in turn it on and if it start making beeping sounds then it probably works.

no 100% way of knowing untill you get the parts though

#3

Do you mean if the motherboard will turn on ?

Well just turn on your computer and if it opens won't any failure it will work

But if your computer won't turn on it's not working even without a OS your computer should turn on

#4

add hard ware that you know works (processor, hard drive, memory) and see if it turns on. if it does not, use a known good power supply to see if it is the PS or the MOBO
