Will metric followers/floorplates work with an inch mag body?

Followers, probably.

Floorplates, no.

FAL floorplate locks inside bottom mag rails.

L1A1 floorplate locks outside the bottom mag rails, and uses a fixing plate on the spring.

Is the fixing plate integral to the floor plate, or a separate piece??

It's a separate piece. It "attaches" to the bottom of the spring and also has a raised "pin" that locks into a hole in the floorplate.

Metric followers will work in a Commonwealth mag body but, won't fix to the inch spring in the same manner as the inch/inch. It is inconsequential though and, will work just fine or, if it makes you feel better, use a metric spring with the metric follower in the inch mag body.
