Yep. Just delete the existing .password-store (assuming all your passwords are in the repo copy)
and run the git clone command.

Nope. The git repo has an already initialized password store, so you don't have to run pass init again.

You don't need to. The password-store is just a bunch of gpg encrypted files, so you as long as you have the same keys, you can use them to encrypt and decrypt the same files.
