Yes, but probably not automated. If you are willing to do it by hand, then yes definitely.

2. If i make something in Autoit will it run on 64 bit windows xp, 7, sever 2008 ?

Yes, 32-bit versions of AutoIt programs will run on 64-bit Windows. Alternatively, you can even compile your AutoIt programs to 32-bit AND 64-bit.

AutoIt and Free-Basic serve very different purposes. Free-Basic is intended from the start to be a general programming language while AutoIt has grown into one. At the present time, AutoIt is very capable as a general programming language, but it especially excels at Windows automation. If you are you going to be dealing with the GUI windows or windows API a lot, then AutoIt is definitely a good choice.
