    sure you can
    autoblogs typically use a feed puller to automatically post content on timed basis - so it is basically hands free
    most folks use this in conjunction with google adsense or some other pay per click service

    a good plugin to do this

    Sure it's legal, but it depends on what you're using it for. When you autoblog it's important that you understand what you're doing it for and how your doing it.

    I have an extensive article at How to autoblog which talks about the process but, as I say in the article it's not about stealing content it's about automating processes.

    For example, my partner and I run a website named http://tinkerpriestmedia.com which automatically syphons content from our other two websites http://bavotasan.com and http://thisismyurl.com for the sidebar. This is a fantasic use for autoblogging, as would be a car dealership automatically grabbing data from their supplier etc.

    can i only use wordpress for autoblogging?

    If by 'only' you mean 'without using a plugin'? No.

    Can you pull content from another blog into a WP blog?

    Sure, if the plugin supports it. Looks like FeedWordPress, as mentioned above, grabs RSS feeds so it should work with a lot of blog engines, though I've never used or tested it.
