The answer is yes. The transducer will fit both units fine without any modification.
See http://primus.lowrance.com/support/resultDisplay.do?docType=1000&contextId=17%3A10.34&clusterName=ClusterPublic&docset=%2FDocuments%2FAccessories&linktosource=1&responseId=135ccbe2cfd4f608%3Adcb03b%3A1218e166f10%3A-5e14&groupId=4&answerGroup=4&score=984&page=http%3A%2F%2Fprimus.lowrance.com%2Ficr%2FAccessories%2FTransducer+Compatibility-Black-192khz.htm&result=5&excerpt=Transducer+Compatibility&resultType=5000#Goto10 for confirmation.

Had the same issue with another brand. Turned out the transducer cable was picking up noise from other cables (power, trolling mtr. etc). Try moving the transducer cable away from any other cables. I put the cable in a 1/4 " plastic housing up to the point where it was above deck and it stopped all the strange stuff. Not sure about the temp issue??

As long as the connection is the same.....maybe. The difference will be the angle of beam from boat to bottom. May not cover the same area...or you could loose zoom etc. something will be different.

SOURCE: How does my Lowrance HDS-5
To connect a LRA 2400 to a Lowrance HDS-5 sounder/chartplotter, you can run an ethernet RJ45 cable from your Radar Processing box to the HDS-5 unit. You will need an adaptor cable for the RJ 45 cable to hook into the HDS-5 head unit. This is part no 000-0127-56.
As for the different transducer pinouts, I am not sure what transducer you have now so I cannot say if there is any kind of converter plug available, however, the HDS-5 units do seem to run best using the transducers that are made for them. Your best option may be to buy the transducer that is made for them, and this will directly connect to the display unit.
Hope that helps!
