Yes and no. In the WYSIWYG editor you can use a shortcode for &mvt style page items, and some template coding will work. However, you can switch editors to a pure code editor in which you can use any template code you want, and then you can insert that code snippet into any post using a shortcode.

7. Can I have more than one blog?

Yes. You can have as many blogs as you want. They can share a blog template or have their own. We have two blogs here. One if for regular Miva Merchant related posts and the other is for the newer support system which uses a different template than the blog system.
