If you had the 1.0GHz, that'd be tricky, but the 1.25GHz can only be the Airport Extreme card. So go for it.
As to bluetooth... I've never heard of having it added (internally) after purchase... There are however 3rd party USB bluetooth dongles you can buy. Just need to get a USB hub, cos you'll start to run out of USB ports.

Currently Being ModeratedApr 6, 2010 8:00 AM (in response to nuclearpidgeon)Only thing I'd add to cosmic's post is the oft-repeated warning: the Airport extreme card is an extreme(ahem)ly tight fit in the eMac card slot. You really do need to keep pushing the card in after every tactile sense tells you the card is seated; push to just short of where the 50-lb eMac slides away from you to make sure it's really fully seated.eMac 700MHz, Mac OS X (10.4.11), 640MB RAM ABS Snow LaCie D2 HD; AL iMac 10.4.11 2 GB RAM; LaCie D2 DVD-RW

bought an eMac second-hand off of a high-school..I pulled the whole thing apart and swapped the CD drive for a DVD writer.. installed a new HDD.
Since you bought it from a high school it would be an educational model and probably didn't have blue tooth installed.
Here's the part numbers for originals (from service source):

I also agree with the other two responders that the installation of the Airport Extreme takes some wiggling.
