This means it will automatically reproject data to the coordinate system (CRS) of the dataframe (which either you set or is set to that of the first layer you add with a defined ...
The use of geographic vs projected is more up to you and your analysis needs. Based on what I've read so far in this question, it is not necessary for you to project into a UTM zone. However if you aren't consistent in picking the correct type of CRS, you will get alignment issues. Generally speaking (and there are exceptions) if your coordinate units are in ...

(1) Add both of your CSV tables to ArcMap and plot the points. Make sure you plot them using the correct geographic coordinate system - File1(NAD1927) and File2(NAD1983). Right click the ...
