The goal keeper handling the ball outside of the penalty area is the same as any player deliberately handling the ball; a direct free kick. In the circumstance you describe the referee will see such minor violations as trifling and will warn the goal keeper to watch his line more carefully. Only flagrant or very frequent incidences will cause a direct free kick to be awarded. Often the keeper actually lets go of the ball in the area and makes foot contact with it outside the area.

Can you kick a soccer ball into the goal and score after the goalie deflects it on a penalty kick?

If the ball crosses the goal line on it's own momentum, then a goal is scored, even if the keeper touched it. If it is a penalty kick during the match itself, then the kicker may only kick it again if it has touched another player, such as the goal keeper. If it is a penalty kick in extended time (e.g. time expired after the penalty kick had already been called) or if during kicks from the penalty mark (a.k.a. shootout) then no player may touch it a second time, except the goal keeper.
