The top part of your post is very difficult to read.
But to answer your specific questions ...
1. Yes. But it must be unlocked. And it will only work for voice and text. You will not get BlackBerry data on GoPhone.
2. Go to Options -> Advanced Options -> SIM CARD -> then type MEPD. Read what is next to "Network". If it reads "Inactive" or "Disabled", then it is unlocked.
