Being a Good pirate is entirely reasonable. Being a pirate involves stealing stuff, but that's not Evil inherently, and it doesn't necessitate anything Evil per se. Many pirates do stuff that makes them not Good, but it's not a requirement.
To answer your actual questions:
1. Depends on how you do it. I mean, raiding in the 'run around killing people who try and stop you' sense is indeed probably out. Sneaking into port and doing something a bit more subtle might be fine, though.
2. Killing people who are actually guilty of crimes worthy of death is seldom Evil. Breaking your word is Chaotic. Thus a CG character can absolutely kill people under those circumstances. Marooning them is also an excellent alternative for the more squeamish, however.
3. Change your Alignment if you want. Or don't. CG piracy doesn't strike me as much more restrictive or less fun than the CN variety.
