Yes they can, but they have to jump from behind the ten foot line. They can land inside it, but they must jump from outside it or it's considered a back-row attack. This applies to all back-row players.

Note that some front-row players back up to pass, but they are still playing in the front row, so that rule doesn't apply to them.

The ref signals a back-row attack by making a hitting motion.

Yes you should be able to, because most servers in the J.V level go right over the net. We the volleyball players off the world should be able to block a serve

No, you are not allowed to attack or block a serve in volleyball. If you did, you would give a point to the other team.
