yes, it would work no issues given that the gearing is the same (use a triple chainring derailleur with a triple chainring crankset or double and double)

Depends what shifters you use. Current Sora cassettes are 9 speed, Claris shifters are 8 speed. You cannot use a Sora 9 speed cassette with Claris shifters
