    Yes it will work. All PS3 accessories are universally compatible. At the moment I'm using a Japanese remote on a US PS3. Not sure why your PS2 one didn't work because I'm sure I've used a US remote on a UK PS2 before.

    Well a UK remote works on my US machine so I don't see why it wouldn't work the other way.

    That's because in the early PS2's the dvd remote drivers weren't included in the console's firmware and had to be uploaded onto a memory card. Once they stopped doing this and the drivers were included in the hardware it wasn't an issue. The PS3 remotes use bluetooth which is already a part of the PS3 spec and is a universal standard just like wi-fi. Any PS3 remote will work on any PS3 regardless of where they are from.
