1) Check the employer condition once you get your BOWP, if it says open then you shouldn't have any issues switching employers. It is called an open work permit for a reason.
2) I did the same thing, applied for BOWP while waiting for PR and had no issues. In the end, it is to ensure we are never out of status while awaiting for the final decision on our PR application. I wrote that as my reason in the BOWP application.

Hey Mate- Did you get an answer for your Question 1? I am in same boat, and want to switch employer while on implied status for BOWP (AOR- March 5)...
