Yes. If the team pulls the starting goaltender and puts in their backup, they can later pull their backup and play their starter again. Same goes for if the team pulls the goalie for an empty net.

Is Six-a-side hockey a game or not?

Well, every game SHOULD have at least six players including the goalie who can be pulled for an extra skater.

So I suppose it all depends on the rules of the game you're playing in.

Because it is an entirely different position. It is the only position in hockey that, if you make a mistake, it is recorded on the scoreboard. It takes a different mental approach for a hockey goalie than a player. Also, goalies are on the ice for the entire game, barring being relieved of duties or injury. Hope this helps.
