Yes they will, but they will be difficult to mount and will not be optimised for the minidish, you need one of the ones designed for the minidish, you can get them from CPC, Astratech, Satcure and loads of others.

Should be OK from eBay, providing they are new, also you shouldn't need a sat meter, as only a small amount of tweaking may be necessary.

The cable should not be TV quality but be rated for satellite at 950 to 2050 MHZ normal 75 ohm cable will introduce to many losses form the lnb

Any of the satellite dealers should have the correct cable
