Not really. microtype is supposed to be compatible with luatex, but 
since luatex primitives have been renamed in TeXLive 2009, it currently 
breaks. This will soon be fixed on CTAN, but for now you can say


before loading microtype.

No. Luatex has inherited some of pdftex's microtypography features 
(viz., protrusion and expansion), but they will only be activated if you 
load the microtype package. If the two files are the same, this means 
that the one generated with pdftex does not activate microtype, either.
