Answer: 
The freehub body of a 7 speed system is a few mm narrower than that of the 8speed

So - alas - the simple answer is NO.

However, the complicated answer is YES! You'll have to remove the hub spindle, and using a large allen key (can't recall if it's 10 or 12mm) unscrew the freehub body, and replace it with a more recent 8/9/10 freehub body. (8, 9 and 10 speed cassettes are all the same, total width), Make sure that cones and seals are compatible with the new freehub body, but it is possible to remove the dust cap from the old one, and re-use it in the new one.

Your overall hub width will increase by a couple off mm, so you may have to re-dish the wheel, or, if you fit an extra spacer on the LH side, that may do it, but it could be a tight fit in the frame. Make sure you have enough axle left to properly re-assemble the hub.

I've done this on several occasions, but I'm also a wheel builder, so for me, it's just as quick, and a lot less messy, to rebuild the rim onto a new hub.

Answer: 
Yes ....you can use a 9spd chain with an 8spd cassette, the difference between 8 and 9 spd chains is in the width, with the 9 spd chain being slightly narrower. You cannot use an 8 spd chain with a 9 spd transmission though. Provided that the chain does not fall into the gaps between each sprocket the only slight disadvantage that you may incur is that the shifting may not be quite as crisp. It is unlikely that you will notice any difference. Generally speaking....like for like quality and link length....the 9 spd chain will be slightly lighter as there is simply less metal in there. Personally, and regardless of all the sales hype from the industry, 8 spd chains are stronger....quality for quality. There is no substitute for metal. I use an 8spd set up for my " training in all filthy conditions " bike, as it simply outlasts and outshifts my 9 and 10 spd transmissions. Frankly the 10 spd is dreadful in mud and grime.

ho una mtb elettrica che monta una corona da 39 ..
i rapporti non sono molto corti per usarla senza motore adesso uso la cassetta pignoni 11/36 a cui ho levato il primo pignone per metterlo dietro ,tanto non serve...
quindi se fosse disponibile un pignone da 40 per montarlo dietro il 36 sarebbe perfetto..

10 spd cassettes.

Can I use a 10 spd. mtb. cassette, say an 11-32 XT model, instead of an existing 11-28 10 spd. Ultegra model to lower the gearing..? I don't want to use the available 12 -30 Ultegra cogset as I don't want to lose the 11 tall gear cog.

Answer: 
Using a cassette of this width may function if the correct derailleur model is being used; however a MTB cassette will not shift as smoothly as a Road equivalent.

Answers

Answer: 
Most hub manufacturers design their freehubs to a similar standard, thus the cassette manufacturers like Shimano and Sram design their transmissions to be a "generic" fit. Shimano and Sram are not compatible on shifter/rear mechs though. Shimano and Sram cassettes will fit almost all freehubs regardless of the trigger shifters or shifting ratios. The ratios and therefore issues with interface, will not effect which make of cassette or chain that you use.
So...go ahead and replace your cassette with a Sram and the chain will also be fine. Of course be sure to replace like for like....e.g...if you are running 8 speed shifters you use an 8 speed cassette & chain, if you are running 9 speed shifters you use a 9 speed cassette and chain....etc.
