No firmware, software or driver is required from Magma, but you may need an updated driver for your PCIe card.
Check the Thunderbolt PCIe Card Compatibility for a list of cards that have Thunderbolt 2 Compatible drivers. If your PCIe card is not on this list, contact the card manufacturer to ask if they have a Thunderbolt 2 Compatible driver.
No, it will not work as an add-in PCIe card in a Mac Tower.
Yes. If you have a mix of generations on a Thunderbolt 2 daisy chain, make sure that the Thunderbolt devices sit after the Thunderbolt 2 devices on the chain. Anything placed after a first generation Thunderbolt device will operate at Thunderbolt speeds.
