No: It's too late. If you mean a "presumed" ovulation based on opk, calendar, mucus, etc... It may still be worth a try. After a certain ovulation, no.

Very difficult: Sperm has to wait for egg. The egg will not wait for the sperm. Intercourse after ovulation usually does not result in a pregnancy.

Possible: Generally the ovum is only viable for up to 24 hours, 48 hours is probably the outside limit, so it is possible(but improbable).

1-2: Sperm can live for up to around 72 hours in the female reproductive tract. 5-6 days is pushing it, so if you want to conceive, definitely 1-2 days. For a typical woman, most fertile days are days 9-14 with day #1 being the first day of her menstrual cycle/bleeding. Good luck!
