    1. Yes
    2. Ask your employer. Nothing special other than them filing an amendment I129 form to change status along with a copy of your I-94, current status proof (may be copy of H1b holder's paystub to prove your legal status)
    3. See #2
    4. Check processing for I129 form at your service center. 2-6 months
    5. Depends on the lawyer plus cost of form I129 filing.

    I am not a lawyer and you need to consult with one to validate any info posted on the forum and discuss your case specifics. H1b Question? Read the FAQ first.
