Can I install .rpm files in Ubuntu? If yes then How?

Why don't you search for the .deb file of that particular package?

Yes, by installing alien. The conversion isn't always perfect, though. It's much better if you can find a .deb package, but if you can't, alien should be able to do the installation.

yes. Use the alien command
use apt-get to install


sudo apt-get install alien

then


man alien
