In brief: Yes

This shouldn't affect your workouts.

In brief: Yes

Just make sure you wear adequate support, and make sure you examine yourself at least on a monthly basis (you should, to check for testicular cancer, in any case).
If the varicocele enlarges to a point where you have discomfort/pain, or if there are fertility problems, then you might require surgical correction. Check with your doctor if you have concerns.

In brief: Yes, you can...

The presence of varicocele shouldn't prevent you from participating in heavy workouts like lifting weights as long as you're free of its potentially related symptoms such as dull pressure and pain.
