Answers

Answer: 
Inevitably disc brakes will squeak to a certain degree when they are wet; however to lower this sound you could run Organic pads but they are not every efficient when wet.

Semi-Metallic although can be quite loud; definitely provide better stopping power when they get soaked.

Be sure to always 'bed' new pads in correctly to ensure the rotor is coated evenly; this will also lower the intensity of rotor scream.

Answer: 
Yes, you should be fine to use these together. If fitting a new brake with an existing rotor be sure to clean the rotor fully prior to installation. For best performance you should consider a new rotor with a new brake.
