In brief: Yes

The tests to accurately diagnose reflux include an egd (upper endoscopy), a 24hr ph study, and an esophageal manometry.
These will accurately diagnose gerd while ruling out problems that mimick reflux.

In brief: Yes

Both endoscopy and pH testing are fairly effective in detecting gerd.
Respone to Prilosec or similar is also a fairly good (and much cheaper) test.
