(1) One who is not mujtahid (capable to derive ruling from the main sources of Quran and Hadith) it is must for him to follow any mujtahid Imam, this is the Islamic belief.

(2) Yes, the Prophets (عليهم السلام) are alive in their graves with Barzakhi life (transitional life after death and before resurrection). Almighty Allah has prevented the land to eat the body of Prophets (عليهم السلام).
