No they cannot.
In the NCAA Men's Division 1 Championship, the game itself is simply called the championship game. The tournament leading up the the championship is referred to as "March Madness" and the four teams that play to determine who will play for the NCAA Division 1 Championship are collectively referred to as the "Final Four."

division 1 cant play teams from division 2 unless fcs
yes...in basketball, 1 A and 1 AA play in the same league. (ex. Villanova is a Div. 1 AA team but they can play for the men's championship against Duke who is Div. 1 a.) Also, there are a number of Div. 1 AA schools who have baseball teams.
For the 2006 season, there were 119 division 1-A teams and 111 division 1-AA teams.
No. The "March Madness" NCAA tournament that is broadcast on national television is for the Division 1 championship. Equivalent tournaments and championships are held for each of the NCAA's divisions. So therefore, Division II teams would play in the Division II Tournament.

FCS stands for Football Championship Subdivision and FBS stands for Football Bowl Subdivision. Teams in the FBS, formerly known as Division 1-A, determine their champion via ratings, both human and computer. The two teams that are at the top of the ratings at the end of the season play in the National Championship Game to determine a champion. Other teams high in the ratings play in bowl games (Rose, Orange, Sugar, etc) for huge payoffs that are shared with all teams in the conference the team plays in. Colleges that play in the FBS are large schools (Ohio State, Southern California, Notre Dame, LSU, etc) with large enrollments and large athletic departments Teams in the FCS, formerly known as Division 1-AA, determine their champion via a playoff where the champion must win 4 or 5 playoff games (based on the team's seeding). Colleges that play in the FCS are smaller schools (William and Mary, Eastern Washington, Montana State, Robert Morris, etc) with smaller enrollments and athletic budgets
yes if they are ranked 1 and 2 in the polls
The Cardinals play Division 1-AA football (aka FCS - Football Championship Series) in the Southland Conference.
