Yes, when you plug the air conditioner in to an ordinary house receptacle this is the configuration that exists. Just make sure that additional loads on that same circuit are not any more that 7.5 amps or the circuit breaker will trip. For air conditioners it is best to have a dedicated circuit right back to the distribution panel. This means that there can be only one appliance, the air conditioner, on that specific circuit.

If the 12,000 BTU A/C only requires 20 amps to run then yes you can use the same 12 gauge wire but you cannot change it to a 15 amp breaker. You will need to install a 20 amp double pole breaker. If it requires more than 20 amps you will have to replace the wiring and breaker.

What size circuit breaker for GFCI circuit in a normal size bath?

Normally it is a 20 amp using AWG 12/2 gauge wire. But it really depends on what size wire is on that circuit. If it is white AWG 14 gauge then use a 15 amp breaker. If it is yellow AWG 12 gauge then use a 20 amp breaker.
