No, you cannot play Minecraft on this or any other Chromebook. Minecraft runs on Windows, MacOS and Linux and Chromebooks run ChromeOS. Under the hood, ChromeOS is based on Linux, but you cannot access this unless you "root" your Chromebook, which is far beyond the average user and voids your warranty.

You can't install driver software on Chromebooks. You can print with your Chromebook, but you will have to do so through Google's Cloud Print service. "Cloud ready" printers can access this service without needing a computer, but most printers will require that they be set up on a separate, internet-connected host computer with the Google Chrome browser installed and set up with the Google Cloud Print app. You would then be able to print on the printer from your Chromebook through the Cloud Print service and have the print job sent to the printer on the other computer.

Sort of, you can load Linux to the computer with a workaround which would give you the ability for Skype. Otherwise you can use Google Hangouts which is Google's version of Skype.
