you need the correct one for the hub.

is this true of all hubs? What if you've got a non-name wheel or can't remember the hub you've got - are you screwed?

Depends how they are screwed on and what fitment it has. Yes the only way is to take it to a shop and let them take a look.

no you take it to a shop and they might work out what fits.

the only ones that are ok to work out are shimano. most shimano are interchangeable.
