To the first question, yes, and to the second, no. fontspec and XeTeX  
will give you access to features already built in a font, but will  
not create new features.

AAT is Apple's font technology (Apple Advanced Typography), similar  
to OpenType but superior in some respects and inferior in others. You  
can see the features available for a given AAT font in the TextEdit  
Font panel (Cmd-T), for example, selecting the font then clicking on  
the wheel-like icon at the bottom of the panel then selecting the  
Typography... item.

Alternatively, for an AAT font you can use XeTeX to process the file  
AAT-info.tex, and for an OpenType font you can use XeTeX to process  
the file OpenType-info.tex. Both are included in the XeTeX  
install .dmg file, in Samples/Plain.

Hope this helps,
