Probably yes, but without more information as to what you are actually attempting it is difficult to discern.

Again, probably yes, but if you don't give us any details, we can not provide a means to offer a solution. You will need to be specific in your explanation. Your current request is far to vague to offer up any type of solution.

My Excel skills are not sufficient to say one way or the other with actual cells. However, you can import a background for SmartArt objects found in the Insert Menu, and an individual SmartArt object can be sized to fit into a cell and be moved and sized with that cell if the correct option is selected.
