Nope, sorry, not unless you put the text in background (header/footer)
text frames on the Master Page. Anything you put in the placeholder 
body text frame on a Master Page is only viewable on the Master Page
itself; it does not appear on a body page based on the Master Page.
And since Master Pages cannot be printed, it is hard to make any 
text you place on a Master Page visible to anyone outside the 
FrameMaker environment.

My opinions only; I don't speak for Intel.

Sure it will...just use that Master Page when appropriate
