No, this is a feature that must be offered by the (LaTeX) class.
memoir, for example, offers sizes up to 17pt:
(If you're used to the article class; otherwise, without the  
[article] option, it will emulate the book class. N.B. that even with  
the article option, you need to use \chapter as the top level  
sectioning command.)

Despite its name, this class is very flexible and highly recommended.

Maybe, maybe not.
You'll need to be more precise; can you post a minimal example of a  
paragraph that does this?
