It's always safe to use a lower than required watt bulb, not always safe to use a higher than  required bulb

I'm not sure about the electrical safety.  I'd just play it safe with a 100w, or get a more powerful lamp.  You can up the light by surrounding the seedlings with aluminum foil.

Yes. As long as you use the same or a lower wattage than the rating you are good. You just cannot go up in wattage.

Oh, and the light bases must be the same. (The screw in part.)
