Help with dealing with emulated sd card.

I have a Samsung Galaxy S II plus running 4.2.2. Most of my apps are installed into my internal memory which shows up as my emulated sd card even though I have a 16gd class 10 sd card. I understand this is a Samsung design feature. I have two questions.
1) Can I install apps and save or download directly into my sd card without rooting my phone?

2) If I root my phone nd don't change the OS, would I still be able to update my phone according to Samsung OS updates?

Any help is appreciated. I'm having a tough time updating my apps as it says that I dont have enough memory.
