Indeed it is; I'm not sure why you're confused about this when a
one-line C# program will give you the answer :-) typeof(int) is
converted by the C# compiler into the following IL:
call class [mscorlib]System.Type [mscorlib]System.Type::GetTypeFromHandle(valuetype [mscorlib]System.RuntimeTypeHandle)
which makes it pretty clear that System.Int32 is specified at compile

No; however there are several common interfaces these types implement,
such as IConvertible.
