Well, you've managed to hit a bit of the documentation that is obviously not completely updated for 10.2, but the basic idea is correct:

Your guess is good, but of course if you've used any 10-specific objects, they won't come across.

More detail is found in metalink Note:132904.1, including things like minimum patch levels necessary. Details like that is why we ask you post such things. In particular, you don't want to use different patch sets on the 9 exp, imp and db, an easy mistake to make if client and server are installed on different machines. You don't have to run anything like catexp, but you do need to go through sql*net (as opposed to a local connection) for accessing 10 from 9.
