In brief: Yes

Unlike an open brow lift, no tissue is removed with an endoscopic brow lift.
The hairline should not be elevated to a significant degree.

In brief: Yes but higher line

Yes you can and the scars can be concealed in your hairline.
However, you may have the perception of an even higher hairline. Options for advancing the hairline and creating a lower hairline are the use of a "pretrichal" forehead lift in which a broken and irregular excision of forehead skin is placed just in front of the hair and creates the illusion of a shortened forehead.

In brief: Yes

But it may raise your forehead higher. You may want to consider a forehead lift of another type if this is a problem.

In brief: Yes but...

Endoscopic incisions are not visible, but that procedure does tend to raise the hairline.
A pretrichal approach (hidden in the hairline) creates a virtually invisible scar, and can be used to actually lower the hairline a little if desired. Fat transfer to the peri-orbital area can help rejuvenate the brow and avoid the "surprised" look of overdone brow lift.
