To accept something is to take if for how it is. Except means there is some sort of a difference. Examples: Even though you're a bad cook and you don't do dishes, I accept you the way you are. This sweater would be perfect except is isn't the right size.

Technically, no. The previous answer is a common question, and not many people would instead say it differently. In most cases, the preposition isn't even necessary. E.g. Where are you going to? What'd you do that for? (Instead, "Why'd you do that?")
