    No. 26" / 700c / 27" rims all have different diameters, so while the tires might have a similar width, they are not interchangeable.

    Buy the right tire.

    No... 26 inch tires won't fit on a 700c rim, if you are asking that. If you mean will a mountain WHEEL fit in the frame that uses a 700 x 38, then maybe. But brakes probably won't reach.

    No.
    Bikes use brakes to stop.

    If your bike has breaks, don't ride it.
