In brief: Yes

It is difficult but possible with continued stimulation of the breast.
This can be done with a breast pump.

In brief: Yes

If you are still lactating from a previous pregnancy, certainly.
It just happens to be unusual, in the western culture, to adopt a child right after giving birth to one.
