    1.) Yes, it is normal if no connections are available. You can only cast to Microsoft Wireless Display Adapter and other Miracast devices. Here I am casting YouTube video to MS Wireless Display Adapter:

    2.) No. Regardless of Chromecast / Google Cast generation, you can only cast to it from Chrome browser and Windows UWP apps supporting Google Cast. Casting from any other browser is not possible. Here the same YouTube video in Chrome, when Google Cast extension is installed you can cast any tab:
