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.

Yes, you merely need an internet connection and enough sense to follow Google's instructions for setting up "classic printers". Your host computer connected to the printer must be on-line internet. Took me 3 minutes.

If you buy a memory card or flash drive you can access your files but they will open up in Google doc's and that's how you'll have to edit them. Most files open fine but if you have a lot of formatting it wont work so great since that feature is still in Beta. For papers or w/e it works and you can re-download the edited copy as a ms word document onto the flash drive/memory card when you're finished so you can transfer it back to your PC or store it in Google Drive and you can access it anywhere.
