The chocolate bar will work, but will be slightly thinner than the same frosting made with the chocolate chips, because the chocolate chip formula has an additional binding agent to make the chocolate shape the chips. This makes the melted version of chocolate chips a bit thicker than a melted chocolate bar.
I would suggest reducing any other sugar you have in the recipe by at least 1/4th to compensate for the extra sugar in the sweet chocolate bar. Also, give it a rough chop as you want pieces the size of chocolate chips
Yes, although you probably want to chop it up. The German's brand is very sweet, but it is real chocolate and should work just fine.
Put your Hershey bar in your car's glove box. Wait for a hot day. Remove it. Fix the situation by putting it in your fridge. Now taste it. That is what chocolate that is way out of temper tastes like. It is still chocolate, but something is clearly, terribly, wrong.
