I would say yes you can as the oil pump can pump it fine. Are you in a warmer climate or loosing oil level in between oil changes?

You can but you may have idling problems due to the tight engine clearances. I would try 5W-20 first before using 5W-30.

You will also lose a certain amount of power and fuel economy by going to a heavier oil.
