You can. Although sometimes you get a bad batch and the turtle you get might be sick without you knowing. Adopting a turtle is a better option.

Find someone who is willing to adopt or take responsibility and care for it. You won’t abandon a dog, don’t abandon a turtle just because it is not a mammal.
How do I make my turtle bask?
Turtles need time to feel safe going out of water, it may take weeks. Be patient.

Yes, but I would not recommend anything expensive. More often than not, turtles will be enticed to hunt for the fish, it is nature. You don’t want your expensive fish’s fins nipped or eaten.
