In brief: YES

Yes, they can. A podiatrist can help you, perhaps with a pair of Rx orthotic devices.

Yes the term is hyperpronation which is when the arch collapses beyond its normal anatomical range and this will cause stress and strain on the foot and ankle

In brief: Most definately

You need to try arch supports or orthotics if you have a flexible deformity.
If they don't help = see a podiatrist for further recommendations and treatment.
