Any files that are NOT Microsoft related should be accessible, however backups made using Microsoft will not be readable.

e.g.Your photo's should be OK, however you may have a problem with files created in Microsoft word, excel etc.

This link should answer most of your questions.

If your Mac is new with Lion OS, the answer is Yes. There is a built in utility called Boot Camp Assistant which will help you transfer Files and Data to your Mac from your PC. Not sure what you mean by "can I use my hard drives the same way"

Copied from Mac Help About Boot Camp With Boot Camp you can install and run Windows XP or Windows Vista on your Intel-based Mac computer, using a Microsoft Windows installation disc that you provide.

Boot Camp Assistant (located in the Utilities folder in Launchpad) helps you set up a Windows partition on your computer’s hard disk and then start the installation of your Windows software. To complete the Boot Camp installation, you install Boot Camp drivers to enable Windows on your Mac.

After installing Windows and the Boot Camp drivers, you can start up your Mac in either Windows or Mac OS X.
