Yes.
Although there is a bug that causes verification to fail if the image file size is not dividable by 128 KB in the current released version.

Should not be a problem with standard operating system images in practice as they all tend to be a whole number of megabytes large.
But might be if you have something more custom.

Yes - Scroll to the bottom of the OS list and choose: Use Custom
Unless specified otherwise my response is based on the latest and fully updated RPiOS Buster w/ Desktop OS.
