can person accounts be referecend in opportunity

Hi, has anyone worked with person accounts? i have some questions:
1) when i create an opportunity, i can instead of account (bussines account) select a person account?
2) If i create a person account, do i see it as an account in "all accounts" and as a contact in "all contacts"
3) Can i use that person (contact) in all the places where the application references a contact?

thanks!
