Perhaps: But you need some teeth to hold your flexible partial. I suggest that you see your own dentist to discuss replacement options.

Yes: As long as you have some teeth to support the partial denture, it is possible. You must remember that you will not have the support or retention that you would otherwise have it you had back teeth to help secure the partial denture in place. Keep smiling !
