If the games have Steamplay, then yes, games that you have on your Mac will be able to be played on your Windows machine. If they do not have Steamplay, you will have to buy the Windows version even if you already have the Mac version.

Some games only run on Windows. These games, obviously, will not run on your Mac and do not appear by default in your library.

Yes. If you bought the game on Steam, it is tied to your account and should be available for you to download on other platforms. That's what the "SteamPlay" icon on the store page means.
