If they sell U.S. games there for your U.S. console, sure, they'd work.
Though you'd think there would be outrageously high import fees on those NTSC games.

No the games are tied to the console. If you get a new one then you have the buy the games all over again.

You can perform a System Transfer between two 3DS'es, although I doubt that it'd be possible between two systems from different regions.

They're not NTSC, they're USA. The region lock is artificial and has nothing to do with the display mode like in the case of home consoles.
