Magento as a storefront for affiliate product catalogues

I’m really, really impressed by what Magento looks to be capable of and I’d love to use it for a forthcoming project, but I’m a bit unsure as to how suitable it might be for it.

In a nutshell, I’d like to be able to use Magento to sell digital music downloads- a mixture of a small selection of tracks from a friend’s record label and a larger catalogue of tracks from one of the major digital music download stores that runs an affiliate programme.

What I’d like to know is:

1. Can I import a product catalogue feed in to Magento and have customers redirected to the merchant’s own product(s) page when the ‘purchase’ (or whatever) button is clicked?
2. Does Magento support the uploading of MP3 previews for downloadable products?

I’ve searched for answers to both questions, but I didn’t really find a definitive answer either way.

Cheers if you can help!
