In principle yes to both, but even though OS X is a *n*x, IIRC Mac NSF integration used to be buggy and problematic (and a low priority for Apple to fix), so YMMV. In comparison, I can attest that Mac smbfs/cifs integration has long been rock-solid, or at least, as rock-solid as anything specced to a "standard" created by MS can be.

The other possibility is sshfs, which introduces a lot of performance-degrading encryption overhead for no particular security gain in a home-LAN situation but needs no extra config if you have OpenSSH set up already.
