Default Camshaft questions...

I have a great deal on a skunk 2 cam for a d16z6. My questions are...

1) Would this cam fit my d16y8

2) Can a cam swap be done in my own garage, or would I need a pro to help me?

3) Is a staged cam a bad idea for an engine with over 175k miles on it?

Thanks a lot!

Stage 1, 2 or 3? Stage 1 works with a stock valvetrain, stage 2 requires new springs, retainers etc, and 3 is even more.......

I'm pretty certain it's a stage 1 camshaft... is there a way to tell for sure?
