Default RAID 1 Questions

I haven't fully read about it, but I am possibly looking to create a RAID 1 array(the one where you lose speed, but get a backup in case of problem) on my father's computer, he actually asked me about that without knowing it existed.

Do I need to have the exact same drive, same manufacturer, same model ? The system already exists as a single HDD computer, do I need to erase it all or will it just start to copy(including what is already on it) on the other drive when the array is created ?

The HDD in question is a 500gb 7200.11 which apparently is safe.
