Yes either team can advance a kick that is recovered behind the line of scrimmage. When the ball is blocked the kickers can recover the ball behind the line and advance to score a touchdown rather than a field goal. The receivers can advance the kick beyond or behind the line.

When do you get 5 points for a field goal?

A field goal (kicking the ball through the uprights at the end of the field) is worth 3 points in American football. There is no "point after" attempt for a field goal. In contrast, a touchdown (carrying the ball past the goal line) is worth 6 points and allows an attempt for an additional point after touchdown, which closely resembles a field goal.

What a team often does if it doesn't make a first down on the third attempt?

Punts if it isn't close enough for a field goal attempt or it goes for the 1st down typically if they are in the opponents side of the field but too far for a field goal attempt.

If the Kick does not cross scrimmage line and is recovered by the opponent who gains possession?

It depends on why it didn't cross the line of scrimmage. A blocked kick, whether a field goal attempt or a punt, is a live ball. Either team may attempt to advance the ball (but no forward passes are permitted).A field goal attempt or punt that is kicked so poorly that it does not reach the line of scrimmage is governed by the normal rules of the type of kick, a field goal attempt is a live ball and may be advanced by either team, a punt must be touched first by the receiving team.So, if a punt or field goal attempt does not reach the line of scrimmage and is recovered by the opponent, they will receive 1st & 10 from where they recovered it (and advanced it to, if applicable).
