Office 2011 is compatible with Lion, but 2016 is not. You should still be able to find copies of 201 Office 2011 is compatible with Lion, but 2016 is not. You should still be able to find copies of 2011 on shelves. Not sure if you can still download it from Microsoft's site directly. You can also use something like Pages or OpenOffice.

I assume you are referring to an iPhone 6s, unfortunately, you can't. You can plug it into your Mac I assume you are referring to an iPhone 6s, unfortunately, you can't. You can plug it into your Mac and it will charge, (possibly at a reduced rate), but to use iTunes to sync and back up to your computer, you need iTunes 12.5, which requires OS X 10.9 (Mavericks). Mavericks or higher should be available as a free upgrade in the App Store in Snow Leopard, but if you are on an unsupported machine, you are out of luck, I'm afraid. On the other hand, Apple has made it very easy to use the iPhone without requiring a computer, with iCloud. You could opt for, say, 200GB of storage for about three bucks a month which should be more than plenty for your backups, with room to spare for photos, app data, et cetera. Even if you don't decide to get additional cloud storage, you get a base 5GB for no cost.

No those MacBooks are limited to 10.7.5 Lion out of the box. You can however browse the web because No those MacBooks are limited to 10.7.5 Lion out of the box. You can however browse the web because there are people who have already done it. You might need to mod something with the drivers and such and definitely replace your wireless adapter to one that supports 10.8 or higher.
