So, if I backup my iPad 1 to the cloud, can I restore to my iPad 3 and have the same setup on the 3 ?

Yes...but it will take FOREVER! After upgrading my iPhone 4 to a 4S, I no longer backup to the cloud. I backup to iTunes. In setting up my iPad 3 today, it only took about 30 minutes. My 4S took almost three hours from the cloud...

Depends on how much content. I had my iPad 3 up and running from the cloud backup of my iPad 1 in maybe 10 minutes. I did clear out a lot of photos & videos before a backup though.
