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.
