Yes. You can do it via the Adobe Digital Negative Converter, LR4 or ACR 7.

Yes, but it's not as powerful or sophisticated. You can use the compressed option (which is lossy) vs. the lossless compressed option on the D800/e. There's a small decrease in file size, but not the dramatic one you can get with DNGs if you change both the compression method and pixel sizes. You can also use 12-bit mode vs. the default 14-bit one.
