In brief: Yes
Many women who have had children and have breastfeed will go on having small amounts of dried colostrum that appears on the nipples.
If there is a larger amount of discharge, then it is necessary to see your doctor to check for other issues that could cause lactation or nipple discharge

In brief: Yes
Milk production can be triggered by nipple/breast stimulation and has been used to allow adoptive mothers to breast feed.
The success is variable.
