(Sorry to use this thread-I was in a hurry and forgot the rule)
Highly doubt it. Have to find pinouts for each and possible wire an adapter (if it is even possible at all).

Nothing. There is a lot more to a monitor than just a vga cable running to a panel.

Don't waste your time. There is a complex circuit that is necessary for the computer to even detect the panel. Without that, there would be no way to enable it. It also converts the picture into something usable by the monitor. There is really nothing you can do here.
