A 29er use the same rim size as a 28"(622 mm) road bike - the common size for adult bikes. The top tube is likely to be lower, allowing even a short person to straddle the bike. Don't let this fool you however, if the reach from saddle to bars is too long you won't be able to get comfortable on it anyhow.

It performs just fine. It's a bit weaker sideways, and slower to accelerate than its 26" counterpart, but nothing major.

How does a 29er mountain bike out perform a 26 wheel off road?

Depends on the riding conditions. It it's a track with fairly small obstacles, say 2-3 inches high, (5-8 cm) then a29er will roll over these easier than a 26" would. At the same time 29er wheels are weaker sideways and heavier to accelerate, so for really technical and hard riding the 26" has the advantage.

Will 700c x 38 tire fit on older 29 inch road bike rim?

Can you change a mountain bike with 26 tires over to 29 tires?

You can't change the tires ONLY, as 29er tires wouldn't fit on a 26" rim. If it's a disc brake bike, you MAY be able to fit 29er wheels in a frame/fork that originally came with 26" wheels though. But you'll have to check how much clearance you have at the fork crown, down by the chain stays and by the seat stays. A 29er wheel will have the tire running about 2 1/2 " higher in the fork, higher between the seat stays and closer to the bottom bracket. If you've got the space for that,(remember to check with the suspension compressed) then you may attempt the switch. The bike will ride a bit higher, be slower off the mark, wheels will be weaker/flexier and you'll basically lose your 1-2 lowest gears.
