Yes to both.

To determine this, compile them and then use M-x disassemble to see 
whether it's inlined.

(defun use-foobar () (foobar))

M-x compile-defun

M-x disassemble use-foobar

byte code for use-foobar:
  args: nil
0       constant  "foo"
1       constant  "bar"
2       concat2   
3       return
