Yes, if the sounds are already digitalized.

Each sample as a package. Umm. Not sure.
Each as a system sound. Not sure, too.

>3) Able to use less memory than Notes due to compression available in SIM?

What's more in the package:
the name
the icon, or something to say standard icon
the code
other package data.

What's more in the Note sample:
the text, at least to say no text.
other notes data

It will be smaller because of compression available with Newton packages.
