Yes, if you have a PC and internet available. You can download the file from your media library on Amazon and transfer it to your Kindle using a USB cable.

Not directly. You will have to convert them to Mobipocket format. There are a couple of ways to do it. First, you can email the document to your kindle email account and the converted file will be emailed to you. Second, you can use Mobipocket or Mobicreator software on your PC (not Mac) to convert it. Now, the results may not be stellar depending on the contents of the PDF. If it is moslty or all text you will have good results. See the numerous threads here for more info on the trials and tribulations of converting/reading PDF documents.

My kindle charger says 110-240volts... so yes.
