    You will have to buy a new one, unless you can get a mod chip...which would probably be more expensive then the actual Wii itself.

    Not at the moment no, but something may become avaliable to allow you to do so. I believe they are called 'freeloaders', and i think are out for most consoles.

    I think the first party games are region-free, not sure about the third party ones.

    Freeloader is only for the Gamecube, and while it may work for the Wii, it'll only be toward Gamecube games.
