Is it possible to take 16 : 9 format pictures with D3100 or only 3:2 ?

For still pictures, the format is 3:2 only. To change the layout, you need to do some cropping or stitching in post processing.

A quick glance at the movie specs indicate both 3 : 2 and 16 : 9 are available for movies.

When I switch my D3100 to video mode the image on the LCD switched to 1 format and plays back at 1 .

It will record in 1 if you use one of the HD video settings. If you choose 640x424 then it'll be ~3:2.
