In brief: Yes
Gum tissue can be added or transplanted to the deficient areas from the roof of your mouth which is a replenishable source for the gum tissue needed to support your denture.

In brief: No
Dentures need to sit on or be anchored to something.
..If no mandibular ridge, hard to do. Uppers will certainly have maxillary structure. You need to see a dentist that fits dentures to determine your options.
