I'm sorta confused by what you mean by this, but it hasn't been answered yet so ill try and help.

I mean, all bikes can have breaks i think, im kind of thinking you are talking about fixed gears, (single speeds, fixies, etc) which are often seen with no breaks, or sometimes only a front break. the reason for this is that for a fixed gear a back break is redundant. fixed gear riders stop by stopping the forward motion of the bike by pushing backwards. this uses the law of motion that an object in motion must stop before changing direction. thus, by trying to make the bike go backwards, it will stop before it ever does.

because a fixed gear can do this, having a back break is just weird.

however, you can by all means put a back break on one. i have a motobecane messenger which is fixed/free wheel convertable and it came with a front and back break kit. i have mine fixed, and only the front break on which is all i need for riding around the city. my friend has the same bike and has it on free wheel so he can coast, and its still a road bike, and yes, he has both breaks on.

so short answer, yes they can.

free wheel road bikes, i recommend a back and front break

fixed gear bikes.. you don't really need a back break. i recommend having the front though for emergencies.

_____________________________

This person is talking about backbreak bikes. These are breaks that are activated by peddling backwards on your bike. Most childhood bikes had these kinds of breaks. I think they're better than handbreaks because your legs are stronger and give you more breaking power. And, yes, some manufacturers do make backbreak bikes.

Depends.

Race bikes tends to have only a rear brake. Bikes for vert riding (lots of jumps) tend not to have brakes. Bikes mainly intended for other kinds of trick riding might not have brakes either.

If you ever plan to ride you bike in traffic, brakes are often a legal requirement as well as being very useful to have.
Yes, your average BMX bike has brakes, but only in the rear. Old school bikes had brakes in the front and rear, but front brakes are normally only found on department store bmx bikes nowadays. Many Pro riders, however, prefer their bikes lighter, and choose not to use brakes and stop the bike by jamming their foot in between the seat and wheel (Called a footjam). I would not recommend removing the brakes from your bike unless you have had a lot of practice on how to stop yourself safely and quickly without them. Hope this helps!

They CAN have, but usually not. If you're racing having to backpedal would take precious time, and you'd lose even more before you can go on power again. If you're doing tricks a pedal brake can mess with your ability to roll backwards. But if you want a BMX for casual riding it's no trouble building one up with a pedal(AKA coaster) brake rear wheel.

Race bikes usually have, while some trick/vert bikes might not have any brakes at all. Some have both front and rear brakes.

Depends on what its for. A pro race bike will have a rear brake, but not a pro vert bike.

Does BMX make 24'' bikes with petel brakes?

BMX isn't a manufacturer, it's type of bicycle - just like sneaker is a type of shoe. BMX doesn't make any bicycles. Bicycle manufacturers make BMX bikes. And pedal brakes aren't that good on a performance bike, as you have to wait until your pedals are in the right position before you can brake. But it's possible that you can find a BMX-looking kids/juvenile bike with a pedal brake. Don't expect it to do particularly well if it gets ridden hard though.
